OK, we have all the rumours and players certain to sign and all that but unless it is official then nothing else counts and looking at the transfer business done by the top six it does not make pretty reading for Arsenal fans.
Only Liverpool have spent less but they are hardly in need of an overhaul and are European Champions so they kind of set with what they got.
Even Chelsea have outspent Arsenal and they are on a transfer ban.
Anyway, in order of money spent this is the current official status of new signings at the time of writing.
Zack Steffen £7.20m
Aaron Wan-Bissaka £49.50m
Daniel James £15.30m
Tanguy Ndombélé £54.00m
Jack Clarke £9.90m
Mateo Kovacic £40.50m
Gabriel Martinelli £6.30m
Sepp van den Berg £1.71m
Obviously, it could all change by the time the transfer window shuts and Arsenal could have ended up spending close to £100 Million but based on what has occurred to date is it any surprise that Arsenal fans are starting to get frustrated?
And remember, just as Arsenal are being linked with big-money signings so are all our rivals and if there is one club in the top six that needs to spend money, it is Arsenal.
It is hard to see how we can progress next season if all our direct rivals spend more than us and on quality players as well.
I have not even looked at the likes of Wolves, Everton, Watford and Leicester City, I suspect that would depress me even more.
