The EmiratesAnother summer transfer window is closed for another year, and needless to say it was a disappointing one for our club, having only managed to strengthen one area of the squad.

Arsene opted to ignore the cries of the fans to add a defensive midfielder to support and offer healthy competition to Francis Coquelin and a top class striker to enhance the side’s attacking power.

The past two summer transfer deadline days were rewarding and exciting for the Emirates faithful, but this one proved nothing but a bore.

The club did more selling than they did recruiting this summer (three signed, 13 offloaded) and if anyone missed any of those deals, here is a summary of what we did before the window closed last night:


Petr Cech (Chelsea, £10 million)

Jeff Reine-Adelaide/Yassin Fortune (Lens £3 million combined)

Donyell Malen (Ajax, Free)


Lukas Podolski (Galatasaray, £1.8 million)

Abou Diaby (Marseille, Free)

Ryo Miyaichi (St. Pauli, Free)

George Dobson (West Ham, Undisclosed)

Josh Vickers (Swansea, Undisclosed)


Carl Jenkinson (West Ham)

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Ipswich)

Yaya Sanogo (Ajax)

Wojciech Szczesny (Roma)

Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom (Hull)

Serge Gnabry (West Brom)

Emiliano Martinez (Wolves)

The club parted with £13 million and received £1.8 million, resulting in a total net spend of £11.2 million.

So, are you happy with ’s transfer activity this summer?

Did get it right in the end, or could he have done more/better with his resources available to him?
