THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN! THE TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN!
And so the moaning begins (although did it really end?)
WHY HAVENT ARSENAL SIGNED ANYONE?
LOOK AT ALL THE BUSINESS EVERYONE ELSE HAS DONE?
WE ARE GOING TO GET LEFT BEHIND!!!!!!!
Well I have one image for you.
And that really does sum it up.
Calm down dear.
For those saying we have not yet signed anyone yet, have you a short memory? Did you get hit by a chair in France?
Arsenal have signed a rock to build the team around (get it? Grant. Rock.).
Granit Xhaka is a tough tackling central midfielder who can pass. A leader, he has been one of the stand out central midfielders at Euro 2016. Top quality signing.
As for other clubs doing business…

That is a conclusive list of what business every Premier League club has done so far.
Manchester United (2), Manchester City (1) and Tottenham (1) have all added to their first team. But so have Arsenal. Bar that, there has been very little business. Unless you include West Ham getting a free stadium a load of freebies.
We are not getting left behind.
The Euro’s are still on.
The Copa America has only just finished.
And if it annoys you that Arsenal miss out on ‘targets’, remember, a lot of the time press make tenuous links. They have already linked us with over 30!
Relax. Don’t let it ruin your summer. The weather will do that.
