Not overly strange with how long it's taken for this to be confirmed. Keeping Cahill as captain disrupts nothing and the players obviously respect him. Also think it's a decision that pays respect or what he's done here over the years. Which is something I support. 

Not a lot of choice really.  Azpi, Luiz, or Cahill.
Cabellero doesn't play enough, Kante just too shy, Hazard too much his own man (nothing wrong with that), Willian ditto (and perhaps Luiz).  Fabregas, Giroud and Pedro too identified with other clubs and not starting often enough.  Jorginho too new - but sticking with Cahill might mean Jorgy is the long term prospect.

This is how I see the squad breaking down over the next 6 months or so...

CURRENT (27):

Kepa, Caballero, Green, Bulka

Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Zappacosta, Emerson, Cahill, Alonso, Ampadu

Fabregas, Drinkwater, Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante, Barkley, RLC

CHO, Hazard, Pedro, Willian, Moses

Morata, Giroud

JANUARY MOVES:

Out: Ampadu (loan), Drinkwater (sold), Moses (sold)
In: New AM

 

JANUARY SQUAD (25):

Kepa, Caballero, Green, Bulka

Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Zappacosta, Emerson, Cahill, Alonso

Fabregas, Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante, Barkley, RLC

CHO, Hazard, Pedro, Willian, New AM

Morata, Giroud

SUMMER MOVES:

Out: Ampadu (loan), CHO (loan), Green (Free), Zouma (Sold), Batshuayi (Sold), Tammy (Loan), Bakayoko (Loan), Cahill (Sold), Emerson (Sold), Fabregas (Sold)
In: Kovacic (Perm), New STK, New CB, New AM2, New LB, Loan CM stay (Van Ginkel, Baker or Pasalic)

 

NEXT SEASON SQUAD:

JANUARY SQUAD (25):

Kepa, Caballero, Bulka

Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Zappacosta, Alonso, New CB, New LB

Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante, Barkley, RLC, Loan CM

Hazard, Pedro, Willian, New AM, New AM2

Morata, Giroud, New Stk

 

That's 5 signing over the next 2 windows, which seems reasonable to me. This obviously all form and fitness permitting, but I think the above is quite likely and will take us closer to the kind of squad Sarri would want.

Or I could be completely wrong!

I think a little differently, agree on Drinkwater and Moses.

Think RLC will go if we get more cover in midfield, I have read a rumour about Lozano.

Think Ampadu will stay yet Christensen will be sold.

With Morata's form and now even Giround scoring do not think we will risk a big outlay on a new striker in January.
