With Arsene Wenger departing last summer, this season was always going to be a transitional one for Arsenal.
They have had their fair share of ups and downs, but overall it’s been a good first campaign under Unai Emery.
The Gunners have missed out on a Champions League place in the league, but their hopes of qualification hinges on their Europa League Final against Chelsea.
Along with this, Arsenal have had a hit and miss record in the transfer market this season.
Emery’s side simply cannot keep up with the financial power of their rivals at the top of the league, which does make life difficult for Arsenal.
This does not take away from the fact that at times, Arsenal have been wasteful with their spending, but successes have also come through the door.
Here we will look at all of Arsenal’s signings this season and rate them from A-F as to how successful they have been.
Bernd Leno - B
Leno was brought in for around £20 million last summer and quickly established himself as Arsenal’s number one ‘keeper.
He has had a few shaky moments, but overall he has been a steady signing for the fee the Gunners paid.
Stephan Lichtsteiner - E
The Swiss full-back has always proved to be a consistent performer over the years for Juventus.
On a free, this looked to be a really astute signing last summer, but Lichtsteiner has really disappointed.
At 35, he is reaching the end of his career and it will come as no surprise if he leaves this summer.
Sokratis - C
Signed from Borrusia Dortmund for around £18 million, Sokratis always impressed in the Bundesliga.
He has been a mainstay in the league and in Europe, but he started the season poorly as he was getting used to life in the Premier League.
He has improved as the season has gone on and at 30, he will be important for Arsenal in the next year or two.
Denis Suarez - F
The Barcelona midfielder joined on loan in January, but his Arsenal career never really got started.
He was highly rated coming through at Barca but he never managed to make an impact in games for the Gunners and an injury has cut his loan spell short.
Matteo Guendouzi - B
Not a lot of people had heard of the midfielder when he joined last summer for just £7 million.
But Guendouzi has become an outside shout for the signing of the season.
He has been an ever-present in the Arsenal side, he is very dynamic and at 20 he will only get better in the coming years.
Lucas Torreira - B
The Uruguay international was Arsenal’s marquee signing last summer, and he is just the player the Gunners needed.
Torreira is like a pit bull in the midfield area and is such a nuisance for opposing players.
Arsenal have needed this type of midfielder for years, and you should expect him to have a top season next time around.
