Serie A midfield advice

Who would you recommend to finish my midfield? Sorry I can’t post a pic at the minute.

Playing 433 (4) with Allan RCM (stay back when attacking, Mertens CAM (get forward) and Nainngolan LCM (Balanced)

I’m thinking either:
NIF Matuidi to replace Allan on stay back
NIF Pjanic on balanced, and move Nain over to RCM - stay back
NIF Hamsik on balanced and move Nain to RCM - stay back

Budget is only about 50k.
Any other suggestions are welcome too.

    SMS - RCM
    Pjanic or Nain - CM

    oh sorry I just say that it's 4-3-3 (4)
    I thought it's the one with 3 flat CMs
    anyway I think you need someone who can attack with H on attack work rate - SMS is good
    pair him with Naingolan at CMs and keep Mertens at CAM

    Matuidi and Nainggolan will still go forward even when told to stay back.

    IF Lucas Leiva is the man if you want a higher rated CDM to stay back.

    Hamsik or SMS for CAM. You could play Mertens but I think he's to light.

    I don’t mind him going forward now and again as I play with my FBs on stay back as I’m not the best at defending.

    I like the idea of a work horse (Nain) technical CM (Pjanic/Hamsik) and CAM in Mertens.

    SMS is a good shout, line his height and physicality.

    I find all 3 midfielders having a high attacking workrate is just asking to be counter attacked especially as everyone plays that style of football.

    I’ll take a look at IF Leiva too. Thanks mate.
