Reviewing every Premier League team’s transfer window
It was a summer of drastic change at Arsenal, and for the first time in 22 years, the Gunners have kicked off a Premier League campaign with a new man at the helm. That man is Unai Emery, and he has begun life in North London with some smart signings.
Lucas Torreira has been brought in to add bite to the midfield, whilst Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos will bring experience to the back line. Mateo Guendouzi looks a good prospect for the future, and Leno could go down as this summer’s most cost-effective goalkeeping acquisition – if he ever gets to play, that is.
With Calum Chambers on loan at Fulham, and Laurent Koscielny out with injury until at least Christmas though, the Gunners could yet come to rue not having made a real push to bring another top class centre-back to the Emirates Stadium.
