Arsenal’s summer transfer window was a little more active than expected, with the club’s net spend around £90 million (much of which will be spread across windows, it must be said). This has allowed Unai Emery to strengthen in key areas, even though stories circulated that they had a budget of less than half of that figure.

Nicolas Pepe’s switch from Lille has been a major factor in this, and the deadline-day signing of David Luiz finally addressed a longstanding issue within the centre of defence. The Gunners' recruitment team have also purchased players for the future, but arguably their cleverest move has been to attract Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid – not least as north London rivals (and Champions League incumbents) Tottenham were said to want him too.
