The good news for Arsenal fans is that in just two days time they can look forward to focusing on football being played rather than the series of ridiculous transfer rumours that have surrounded their club all summer.
However with the new season due to kick off this weekend, Wenger is still yet to bring in any first team reinforcements, despite his reported £70 million budget and list of endless stars being linked.
Whilst the Arsenal manager will have pleased supporters to an extent with his ongoing disposal of the deadwood with the likes of Arshavin, Santos, Denilson and Gervinho having all departed the club this summer, the fact that no new faces have come in is something of an embarrassment.
This is a big season for the Gunners, with the trophy drought now totalling eight years, and no serious title challenge since 2004/05.
The fact no new players have been bought in as yet remains something of a mystery, and even more concerning is the fact players who the club have been so strongly linked with have gone to other clubs, with it later being revealed Arsenal never even made an official bid.
With that in mind, we have identified five of the most farfetched transfer stories concerning Arsenal this summer.
