Realistic signings in the summer

If we make top 6 (or qualify for the Europa League through Manchester United finishing ahead of us and winning the EFL cup), what realistic signings can we expect in the summer window?

With the primary positions being: Goalkeeper, Centre Back (one or two?), Left Back (back up to Baines), Attacking Midfielder and Striker, personally, I'd like to see:

GK: Kasper Schmeichel / Joe Hart / Jordan Pickford
CB: Michael Keane / Van Dijk / Lamine Kone (two of them - with Jags probably making way in the summer)
LB: Jordan Lukaku / Andrew Robertson / Jordan Amavi
CAM: Sigurdsson (I'd be very happy if he came in, absolute quality)
ST: Mertens (Has been playing striker for Napoli - top goal scorer in Serie A and can play in many positions) / Haller / Perez (he looks quality, looks like Arsenal aren't using him much).

However, if Deulofeu and Mirallas stay next season, I don't think we need another striker. With them and Calvert-Lewin backing up Lukaku.

Team for next season:

1. Robles 2. Keane 3. Baines 4. Schneiderlin 5. Williams 6. Van Dijk 7. Deulofeu / Mertens 8. Barkley 9. Sigurdsson 10. R Lukaku 11. Mirallas 12. Holgate 13. Schmeichel 14. Bolasie 15. J Lukaku 16. McCarthy 17. Idrissa 18. Barry 19. Lookman 20. Davies 21. Besic 22. Stekelenburg 23. Coleman 24. Tarashaj 25. Funes Mori 26. Dowell 27. Browning 28. Pennington 29. Calvert-Lewin 30. Connolly 31. Kenny 32. Galloway 33. Hewelt 34. Sambou 35. Walsh

With Jagielka, Kone, Cleverley, Lennon going out. Possibly one of our goalkeepers going out too. Keep Barry, he won't play a huge part, but will be a big influence!
