While Arsene Wenger has often lamented the mid-season transfer window, he was forced to act in January this time around.
Doubts over Alexis Sanchez’s future resulted in a swap deal with Manchester United, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the other way, and that seemed to trigger Arsenal’s interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well – who arrived in north London on January Deadline Day.
But some would argue neither player are as talented as Sanchez, while Arsenal’s business didn’t actually solve their long-standing problems in defence and at the base of midfield. At the same time, the Gunners handed a good addition to Chelsea in the form of Olivier Giroud, following Francis Coquelin and Theo Walcott out of the exit door.
So, with a net January outlay of £11.12million according to Transfermarkt, are you happy with your club’s efforts in the transfer market, Arsenal fans? Let us know by voting below…
