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.
While Ospina may have been a credible third choice keeper for the club, that’s nowhere near what he deserves. He’ll hae a rea chance to shine with Italian giants Napoli, which is a move that he’s been waiting for.
What a career. The Czech keeper had a fantastic run at the top of the English and international game, and while he may have dropped down through the ranks ever so slightly over the course of time, he’s still one of the Premier League’s true greats.
Danny Welbeck should’ve been given another opportunity to shine with the Gunners, in our opinion, but the strength of the squad means that he probably only would’ve been featured in cup games anyway. Now, over at Watford, he’ll be given a bit more freedom with which he can really shine.
It was a shame to see Lichtsteiner leave the club, but he wasn’t really going to have much joy in the first team and that much is just a given.
We knew this one was coming for a while but it still hurts. Ramsey is a fantastic player and he’ll do great things in Italy, but we can’t help but feel like he’ll return one day.
Good riddance. He treated the club with an incredible lack of respect, and we don’t really feel like he can be forgiven for that.
Jenkinson received some flack for some of his performances towards the end of his Gunners career, but we’re really happy to see how far he’s come from a maturity standpoint.
The fact that Arsenal have been able to get as much money as they did from Everton for Iwobi is truly remarkable, and while that sounds disrespectful, we do appreciate how much he used to give on a week to week basis when he was really on the ball.
