It has certainly not been the transfer window most Arsenal supporters were hoping for.
Rewinding back to the final day of last season, everything looked good for the Gunners. They had just pipped arch rivals Tottenham to Champions League qualification, and Wenger was ready to splash a £70 million transfer budget over the summer to ensure his side would be capable of challenging for silverware once more.
With the start of the new season now less than a week away, the only addition to the Arsenal squad is an untested 18-year-old centre forward from France – Yaya Sanogo.
It remains a mystery as to why there have been no big incomings at the Emirates Stadium, but one thing Wenger does deserve credit for over the course of this transfer window has been his ability to shift some of the deadwood.
The likes of Andrey Arshavin, Andre Santos, Denilson, Gervinho and Maraoune Chamakh have all left the club, and Nicklas Bendtner is expected to also – if one single club decides they actually want to sign him!
With Wenger seemingly in a ruthless mood with regards to outgoings, we take a look at 5 Arsenal players who need big performances this season to ensure they do not suffer the same fate next summer.
