Arsenal Have Made Multiple Transfers Already This Season
You must hand it to the current management team at Arsenal, they are certainly prepared to make some major changes to their team when they are required, and so far, this season, they have made some big money transfers not only out of their team but into it too.
However, having said all of that, they are of course a team that does have deep pockets and are always able to spend the cash when needed, and as such let me now look at the players that have been bought in and sold too.
It may not look like a big money deal on paper, however they have signed in Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannina which some people may think was a risky move, however in the scheme of things they did only spend £1.8m on him.
A swap deal is always the most cost-effective transfer a team can make; however, they are not always the best transfers of course, and it was Henrikh Mkhitaryan they brought into the team from Manchester United, and it was Alexis Sanchez that they swapped him with and is on his way to Manchester United in that swap deal
One player that did cost them a small fortune was of course Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the transfer fee they paid to Borussia Dortmund was huge at £60m, but the London club does have plenty of cash sloshing around to pay for such big-name players.
There were also plenty of players being transferred out of Arsenal, and in fact more at the last transfer window that were brought in, and one player they did transfer out was Olivier Giroud from Chelsea and they got £15.3m plus £2.2m in add-ons
Theo Walcott -moved from Arsenal to Everton and that transfer deal will help fund some other transfers later for they got £20m for him.
Francis Coquelin moved to Valencia for an undisclosed and plenty of players were loaned out too including Tafari Moore who went to Wycombe Wanderers, Ben Sheaf who went to Stevenage and Jeff Reine-Adelaide who is on load to Angers.
There was something of a mystery surrounding Mathieu Debuchy who was transferred out to St Etienne but for an undisclosed sum as was Marcus McGuane who went to Barcelona, and Stephy Mavididi moved to Charlton on loan, and Chuba Akpom went to Sint-Truidense on loan too.
A couple of other transfers to tell you about include Krystian Bielik who is on loan to Walsall and Julio Pleguezuelo who is currently on load to Gimnastic. So, as you can see there has been some major changes already at Arsenal and they will now be looking to the future and hoping their newly ensembled team will have what it takes to make them shine once again!
