Arsenal are one of the club's that signed more than four players this summer transfer window and even though they splashed the cash to sign as many as five new faces Thai summer, their former player, Andre Arshavin has revealed that he is not satisfied with the signings that the Gunners made.
The north London club signed at least a player for almost every department and position in the squad in a bid to continue their rebuild of the team under manager Mikel Arteta. After already completing deals for goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, defenders Ben White and Nuno Tavares from Brighton and Hove Albion and Benfica respectively, they also signed midfielder Sambi Lokonga.
They wrapped up their summer transfer business with the signing of another defender Tomiyasu but despite doing all of those, Arshavin has revealed that he is very far from being impressed by his former side. Arshavin said that, to begin with, Arsenal failed to sign a striker this summer and it goes on to show that they have continued to show faith in the misfiring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has continued to underperform for the club. Arshavin, a former Arsenal attacker, said that Aubameyang and fellow strike partner Alexandre Lacazette are no longer performing at the level expected of them and insisted that they should have been allowed to leave.
The former Russia international star also revealed that despite investing so much money in the signing of those players, Arsenal still failed to recruit any world-class or top-quality signing. Arshavin says that even White, a £50 million signing from Brighton, would not be considered as world-class and lashed out on the Arsenal board for failing to sign any proven star this summer. Arsenal are yet to earn a single point in the league this season, losing all their three games and failing to score in any of them.
