A look at Arsenal’s summer transfer window – IN

Posted on August 09, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The summer transfer window has officially come to an end, and it’s time to take a look back at Arsenal’s dealings. In this piece we’re going to take a look at the incomings, with the brand new Premier League season being right around the corner. There’s still a lot of uncertainty about how the campaign is going to go, but for the most part, it feels like things are looking up.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this.

Gabriel Martinelli

We think this could be a pretty underrated signing for the Gunners, with Martinelli showcasing some really great stuff in the early stages of his Arsenal career. There’s still a long way to go, obviously, but we’re cautiously optimistic.

William Saliba

Saliba is heading back out on loan so we aren’t really going to get much of a flavour for what he can do until next season. Still, there seems to be some real potential there and we like that this was a forward thinking move from Unai Emery.

Nicolas Pepe

When you spend over £70 million on a player it’s quite clear to see he’s going to be really, really good, and with that being the case, we’re so excited to see what Pepe can do. He is going to provide Auba and Laca with some great service, and while he’s still quite young, we think that’s going to play right into the club’s hands in terms of how they nurture and grow him as a talent.

Kieran Tierney

It took so long to get this deal over the finish line, and now, we’re just excited to see what happens with Tierney. There’s so much hype surrounding him but you never truly know how someone is going to react to being at the Premier League level until we see it for ourselves.

David Luiz

This quite literally came out of nowhere, but we’re so glad that it did. David Luiz is the kind of leader at the back that Arsenal so desperately need, and while there’s more work that needs to be done, this is a great start for Emery.

Dani Ceballos

Ceballos has the kind of passion and determination that could make him a nightmare to deal with in the middle of the park. He’s a really exciting presence to have in the starting XI, and Arsenal fans should be very excited.

What are your thoughts about Arsenal’s incoming transfers?

    You do not include how much of the 2019 $45m transfer Kitty was actually spent this year. It looks like all of it!

    The Pepe transfer was spread over 5 years. How many of the other transfer fees were also spread over several years?

    How much of those deferred payments will come out of next years transfer kitty?

    I ask, because if Arsenal do NOT qualify for the Champions the League next season, will there only be $40m to spend in 2020 kitty, and if so, how much of that may already have been spent this year.

    I am worried that Arsenal will not qualify for the Champions League, and with even less to spend next year, will start to drop down the table quite quickly.
