The January Window?

Now we all know that Mr Levy is not one to splash the cash in the January transfer window as he believes that there is not value for money at this time and he is probably right in general.

However, should we be looking at players who are out of contract in the summer and rather than wait and be part of a mad rush, stump up some cash and get in early? A look through the players who will only have 6 months left on their contracts throws up a few interesting names and some I feel we should seriously look at as you can often get them for half market value.

Theo Walcott - I know another Gooner, and in all honesty, I dont think he would want to join us but if he still hasnt signed an extension and still isnt getting regular games should we be cheeky and offer a tempting bid? He may not be world class but he is a good player who would offer cover/competition on the wings for Bale, Lennon etc but can also play through the middle and who knows, given the chance could be a revelation there! With a market value of around 16m could we get him for 8?

Daniel Sturridge - I'm a big fan of his and rate him above his other young English compatriat Welbeck. He isnt getting regular football at Chelsea and if they do go after Falcao that isnt likely to change anytime soon. A market value of around 14m could Chelsea be tempted with a cheeky 7m bid in Jan?

Kolo Toure - Although not the player he once was he is still a good Premiership defender. If we sell Dawson this summer for anything around 7m and then let Gallas go in the summer we will be down to 3 CB's so would picking up Kolo for just 3-4m in January be such a bad idea?

Klass-Jan Huntelaar - A great finisher as we have seen in the Champions league, who has stated his desire to join the Premiership. We know we have been linked before but lets stop messing about and get him before Liverpool do. With a market value of around 17m an offer of 10m would possibly do the job in January.

Cristain Tello - A young up and coming Barca player that for whatever reason hasnt signed up past this season. He is only 21 and can play on the wing or as a striker and being left footed could be good cover for Bale. Could we steal a Barca star like Wenger did and only pay 4m?

Llorente - Another player everyone is after so if we are brutally honest we are unlikely to get him and even with his contract running out it would still probably cost over 20m!

Marc Muniesa - Another young Barca player but a CB this time could be got for as little as 3m.

Now I'm sure there are many others that people can suggest and I accept that none of these are possibly the world class players we scream for but lets be honest - we cant compete with trying to sign Falcao, Llorente, Neymar etc etc but we can pick up class players for a bargain this January.

Would we complain at adding Huntelaar and Sturride to our squad at under 20million? or picking up 2 young Barca stars for around 7-8million? I can't really see us spending 30 million in january unless we can recoup some from sales but who knows and it doesnt hurt to be hopeful does it?
