So, it looks as though the departure of Lucas Perez to the happy hammers was the only deadline day deal to get over the line.
Below is the Arsenal squad according to the Premier League website but, apparently, players can still be sold or loaned out until the end of August, so players such as David Ospina could still go.
Today is meant to be when 25 man squads are registered but changes to them will be made if players are sold or loaned before September 1st.
How are we looking?
Perhaps the midfield looks stronger with the addition of Torreira and Guendouzi to replace the outgoing Jack. Emile Smith Rowe will be hoping to push on and get some first team action this year after impressing in pre-season.
Up front, we look mobile and pacy but with no plan B anymore. Thank Dennis for that, some will say! Maybe Ramsey will get more time further forward this season?
Kos not expected to be back in training until the end of the year at the earliest, looks to be the biggest hole in the squad at present. New signing from Dortmund, Sokratis wasn’t that convincing in pre-season, but presumably the new purchasing team have some idea as to what they’re doing, so I’m hoping he’s just taking time to settle in and will turn out to be a great buy. Presumably Mustafi and Sokratis will be the first choice pairing.
The Beast out for a few months is a blow but Maitland-Niles is adequate cover for Nacho. Right back is looking stronger than it has done for ages, Hector can be rested safe in the knowledge that Lichtsteiner provides a wealth of experience.
What are your feelings? Are we good to go?
