Kamada - Jorginho - this is more difficult as I'm not a big fan of today's Jorginho, but maybe I'd pick him up as Asllani can go further on the pitch.
BTW Jorginho isn't exactly free, either:

As reported by Mundo Deportivo via TMW, Arteta and Arsenal have been happy with Jorginho’s work since his arrival and plan to activate the one-year extension clause attached to his contract, extending his stay to June 2025.

When you have Asllani and Hakan, why would you want Jorginho. He would not be able to cover so much ground as Hakan. He couldn't do that even when he was younger

Zielinski is in slight decline compare to his top form few seasons ago. We're currently stuck in the mid unless if there is a plan to sell Hakan or Barella. Or Frattesi.

I'd be keen for Zielinski to phase out Mkhitaryan next season. I'd rather those hefty wages were directed to a striker though.

I don't see how we can bring in a high wage midfielder without selling Calhanoglu or Barella. We should be basically set at the position, minus a nominal Sensi replacement. We need to throw money at a third forward or another CB.

+ one, even two RWBs though. Cuadrado is expiring and Dumfries is not extending his contract, so would be sold.

I agree, but a new challenge would probably redeem himself.

RM: Inter is back for

Nahitan Nández

because his contract is expiring in 2024 :cool: this time there will be no more blocks to sign him AND we can stick it to Cagliari for their recent shenanigans.

Corriere dello Sport reported it this morning, underlining how the Cagliari midfielder has returned to the Nerazzurri's sights.

Confirmation from the words of his agent Pablo Betancour: "The Nerazzurri club called us: they want Nahitan. But they are not the only ones", explained the agent to "Carve Deportiva".
He is expected for summer of 2024, however in case Cuadrado`s injury problems continue, it`s not excluded that Inter might sign him in January.

Personally I`m very happy that we`re finally getting him - especially at this cost! Another masterclass.

Meh, he's nothing special.

Nandez is a workhorse. He can cover mid spot as well in case of emergency. I don't mind him instead of Cuntdrado for free, but we need a decent starter to replace Dumbfries.

A much appreciated workhorse by the club. He can also play in central midfield if ever needed.

When Denzel is sold, the candidate to replace him is Buchanan... and until he adapts to Serie A, Nandez will probably start.

PS: Hakimi still got a contract until 2026.

Nandez would have been fine a few years ago, but I don’t see the point now. He’s not good enough to break into our midfield. I can only see this a Cuadrado replacement on the right-wing. But we should be targeting better, natural wingbacks.

That's why he should be bought. Cuadrado ain't staying here for long.
