January 2017 transfer activity for Arsenal - what I would do if I were Dick Law

Kos, Giroud and Coq have signed to extend their stay with Arsenal. Good news I would say. What would be great now is to get Alexis to sign. Give him the 200k+ wages and promise to get Simeone this April or next. Also promise Alexis that Simeone will be given a huge budget with the target of a trophy in Year 1 itself.

If Ozil signs, its fine but its ok to sell him and look at other 10s as well like Isco, James, Veratti, Pastore or we could even look at a Reus. Extend Cazorla at whatever cost. Give Wilshere a contract extension now in January and sell him in the summer. The Ox and Gibbs should be let go as well but given we still need homegrown quota, bring Chambers back in from his loan. He can play backup RB to Bellerin and the new RB. Sell Debuchy and get a younger RB for the day when Bellerin leaves us for Barcelona. Let Per go & sell Gabriel. Promote Holding and get a versatile CB who can double up as LB.
