Don't know much about these guys but two relatively young players looking for their first big move:
Magalhaes
Guimaraes

Two players whose careers seem to have stalled and who would benefit from a freah challenge:
Lemar - exchange for Laca
Barbosa - use Auba money

A back up striker:
(a plan B premier league experienced back up striker/target man. Like Giroud or Benteke, a cheaper striker towards the end of their careers).

Issa Diop or Upamecano or Ake and sell Sokratis
Doucoure or Zakaria or Partey
Zaha or Jonathan David if Auba leaves
Edouard or Moussa Dembele if Laca leaves
Sell Kolasinac to get his wage off the books and take kurzawa on a free

1 Bernd Leno;

2 Achraf Hakimi
6 Willy Saliba
5 Tino Mavropanos
3 Kieran Tierney;

4 Pape Gueye
8 Matteo Guendouzi
10 Houssem Aouar;

7 Bukayo Saka
9 Gabriel Martinelli
11 Nico Pepe

Alternatively, right back would be Max Arrons, Denis Zakaria or Wilf Ndidi for the defensive midfield position and Kai Havertz for the attacking midfielder.

Not disputing that his Arsenal career hasn't taken the upward trajectory his early promise suggested it would, but in that I also saw that he possessed a strong enough mentality and good attitude to support his footballing potential, I'm not writing him off just because he's hit a bump or three in the road.

In the same situation maybe you would be telling your son to jack it in now, give up on the dream and settle for non league instead because some fans think you're shit and not good enough for the top level.

Kevin Dr Bruyne, Mo Salah and Romelu Lukaku got bombed out of Chelsea because they were deemed unlikely to fulfill their potential or put simply, not good enough. Newcastle United, awash with fêted scouts and talent spotters broke a teenage Shearer's heart when they told him he wasn't good enough for them.

I'm not saying that Mavropanos will definitely be the bees knees and like a catapillar to a butterfly turn into a Raphael Varane. But will whoever it was that saw the resurgence of Skodran Mustafi coming in those last few weeks of the season, please give me some lottery numbers.

CB and CM are the priorities for me. I'd rather we spend whatever budget we have on filling those 2 positions with top talents.

CB: Upamecano / Unai Nunez / Tah
CM: Thiago A / Ruben Neves / Van de Beek

A midfield of Torreira, Ruben Neves / Thiago and Van de Beek would be decent imo. I reckon all three would be available for the right price.

Giroud will be a free agent starting June 30. Should we take him on a two year performance based deal? Could be a good squad player to have. Specially since we have strikers coming off the flanks like Auba, Martinelli and Pepe. His hold up play could help them like it did Sanchez.

Personally if you are going to go for a target man I would get woods, he is young and can score goals giroud is past it

A good analysis of Girouds game.
