Arsenal were completely dormant in this transfer window as they just signed one play this time. The Gunners had roped in Petr Cech from rivals Chelsea way bak in June for 10 million pounds.
The North Londoners were linked with several big names, Karim Benzema being the most prominent name. There were several reports which suggested that Arsene Wenger would push the limit to bring the French forward. Unfortunately, the deal fell through after Karim Benzema committed his future to Real Madrid.
The Gunners were also linked with PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the deadline day, but none of the deals materialised. Thus, Arsenal’s spending this summer was just 10 million pounds.
As a result, fans around the world mocked Arsenal for not doing business in this window.
