But fans were still left feeling like they needed an extra striker and an extra midfielder and it appears they may get their wish with the latter.
As according to the Daily Express, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a personal plea to Adrien Rabiot to choose the Gunners over a move to Chelsea.
And reports now suggest that PSG have given Rabiot permission to hold talks with the North London club over a possible transfer.
It is thought that Wenger is prepared to match the French giants’ £5.5 million asking price so a deal should not be too hard to finalise as long as the teenager is keen.
However there will no doubt be other clubs registering their interest now he has been made available for transfer.
Rabiot’s current deal ends in 2015 and he is yet to agree new terms at the Parc Des Princes so it appears that he will move this summer rather than leave on a free next summer.
