For the second time in as many summers, the Arsenal squad received a mini overhaul.

In 2018 there were five new arrivals, while the likes of Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Lucas Perez were all allowed to depart the Emirates Stadium on permanent deals.

Then last summer, Laurent Koscielny, Alex Iwobi, Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey, Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck were just a number of high-profile exits at the north London outfit.
