Arsenal's transfers rated

2015-09-02 12:20

Cape Town - Arsene Wenger again frustrated Gooners around the world after failing to sign one major outfield player in the transfer window.

Arsenal transfers rated: 4/10

The Gunners desperately needed a 20-goal striker to join the club to aid their push for Premier League glory and maybe another centre-back to provide cover for Koscielny and Mertesacker - Wenger opted against signing either.

Transfer summary:

In: Petr Cech (Chelsea, £10m), Donyell Malen (Ajax, free)

Out: Ryo Miyaichi (St Pauli, free), Abou Diaby (Marseille), Carl Jenkinson (West Ham, loan), Yaya Sanogo (Ajax, loan), Wojciech Szczesny (Roma, loan), Serge Gnabry (West Brom, loan), Emiliano Martinez (Wolves, loan), Lukas Podolski (Galatasaray, £1.8m), George Dobson (West Ham, undisclosed), Josh Vickers (Swansea, undisclosed), Chuba Akpom (Hull, loan), Wellington Silva (Bolton, loan)

Best bit of business: Signing Petr Cech was a fantastic bit of work by Arsenal.

Worst bit of business: Olivier Giroud remains the club's only out and out striker, something Arsene Wenger is clearly at peace with.
