I agree on Sanchez. If he's second choice he'll want to go and we won't stand in his way. I doubt we'll get megabucksAt this point I'm still enjoying having all the big guns and hoping(hoping not necessarily expecting) that Ally Mac and Caicedo will still be with us next season.
So players that we could lose could be:
Sanchez. If he doesn't regain his place I'd expect him to be sold. It makes sense for both parties - he doesn't want to risk his place in the Spain squad for too long and for us he's a player we can get a decent fee for while not missing him(in that he's not playing in the first team rather than he's not any good).
Gilmour's future interests me. He's a player with a fine reputation from his time at Chelsea and with Scotland but he's had hardly any playing time with us and struggled at Norwich last year. He's another player that we could get a solid fee for(at least what we paid to get him) while his loss would not impact the first team.
Lamptey could be another whose sale would bring in money without affecting the first team too much. I don't want to lose him but he came to us to get game time and this season hasn't had a whole lot of it. Of the three I've mentioned he's the one I'd be most reluctant to sell.
If selling those three meant we didn't need to sell Caicedo or Ally Mac then I'd be on board. I reckon we could get 50-60m or so for them.
Gilmour. I can see him going. He seems down the pecking order.
Lamptey. I would be surprised if we sold. Not least because we only currently have 3 full backs and he covers both positions.
