Arsenal’s 2017/18 business has been about offloading the deadwood rather than bringing in talent.
In total, Arsenal have only spent just under £50m on new players this season. In contrast, we’ve made £95m shipping out players we don’t want.
The Gunners have signed three players; two in the summer and one in January (so far). We’ve also offloaded SEVEN with more likely to leave come June.
Here’s how Arsenal’s transfer business for 2017/18 looks:
Alexandre Lacazette – £47.7m
The 26-year-old sign for Arsenal for a club record of £52m, including add-ons. The striker had netted 37 goals in 45 appearances for Lyon during his final season in Ligue 1.
Although he’s found it hard to bed in at a new club, he’s still scored eight goals and provided four assists in 23 Premier League games.
Sead Kolasinac – £0
The Schalke left-back was a breath of fresh air when he first barrelled over from the Bundesliga on a free.
The 24-year-old hasn’t been as impressive during recent weeks and has been out with an ankle injury this month but considering we didn’t pay anything for him, I doubt Arsene Wenger’s losing much sleep over his poor defensive work.
Konstantinos Mavropanos – £2m
Mavropanos signed from PAS Giannina this month and is yet to feature for Arsenal’s first team.
The 20-year-old has played for our u23s though and was impressive.
