While this season has yet to kick off, Arsenal fans have not endured the most enjoyable of pre-season campaigns. It had been reported that Arsene Wenger had £70million in the bank to spend on signings this summer, and he promised that unlike recent transfer windows, Arsenal would spend big and secure a star signing.
Rumours such as Jovetic, Higuain and Suarez circulated in the nation’s press as targets for the Gunners to bring to The Emirates, however one by one they have signed for other clubs, or have been ruled out of a move to the Premier League club.
So will this be yet another disaster for Arsenal and their fans alike? There is certainly a need for them to spend and ensure someone else joins the ranks in North London, but who else could Arsene Wenger convince?
