Arsenal’s transfer negotiator Dick Law will take up an advisory role at the club for the summer transfer window, according to reports.

Law was the clubs’ chief negotiator for several years before reportedly stepping down in September to spend time with his family in the United States.

According to the Times [£], though, Law hasn’t severed his ties with Arsenal completely and will now stay on to give advice during the summer transfer window.

The news has been billed as a boost to Arsene Wenger, who found a long-term ally in Law.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has pushed through a number of changes to the backroom staff at the club this season.

Raul Sanllehi will start his new position as head of football relations this month, with the Times also reporting that he was to be given control of our summer window.

Steve Rowley, another of Wenger’s long-term allies, also stepped down, with Sven Mislintat arriving from Borussia Dortmund in November to become the new head of recruitment.

The new arrivals may oversee a change to Arsenal’s transfer strategy that reduces Wenger’s influence in the process ahead of what many believe will be his final season at the club if they fail to remove him during the summer.

How much advice Law will give in the summer is unclear, but the report is certain that he will help plan Wenger’s final season at the club.
