With Mbark Boussoufa gone, Anderlecht are still lacking a left winger. Ariel Jacobs tried several players on this position, without great successes. It looks like the club will have to find another reinforcement.

Jacobs tried with Reynaldo, Chatelle and Legear on this position, but it's clear that those players are not used to play as a left winger. Kanu and Suarez are another option, but they perform better in a central role.

Diogo, a left back, did an adequate job. As a defender, he still makes positional mistakes but his offensive qualities might make him into a winger. Safari also performed well, but he prefers a place in the defense.

This means Jacobs has two options left: changing the formation to a 4-4-2 instead of a 4-3-3 or convincing the club to land a real winger. Anderlecht are willing to make some costs for a serious reinforcement. Milan Jovanovic and Kevin De Bruyne are suited for the job.

Jovanovic already had a talk with the Anderlecht board and he's allowed to leave his club Liverpool. The player has a love affair with the Brussels' club, but his salary might be problematic. It's clear though that his style of play fits Anderlecht perfectly. Furthermore, he's popular with the home fans, despite the fact he used to play for Standard de Liège, Anderlecht's biggest rival.

De Bruyne is too expensive. The only possibility the club has, is selling Lukaku to Chelsea and including De Bruyne (Genk) in the deal. The Blues are interested in de Belgian midfielder and would like to loan him to Anderlecht in case it comes to a transfer.
