Arsenal have made an encouraging start to their 2020/21 season and also enjoyed a successful summer transfer window, bringing in several key players.
Brazilian duo Gabriel and Willian were signed from Lille and Chelsea respectively, while Dani Ceballos returned for a second season on loan from Real Madrid.
It wasn’t until transfer deadline day, however, that Arsenal completed their biggest and most high-profile signing of the window: Thomas Partey.
The Ghana international was brought in for £45 million from Atletico Madrid and impressed on his full debut in the Europa League win over Rapid Wien.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is, however, a realist and will know further additions are required if his squad are to improve and challenge for the Champions League places this season.
And, with that in mind, here is the latest transfer news involving the Gunners.
Portuguese youngster linked with Arsenal
Arsenal are one of four clubs interested in Portuguese defender Nuno Mendes, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.
The Sporting left-back is also believed to be on the radars of AC Milan, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United despite only being 18.
Mendes recently signed a five-year deal with a £40million release clause, but the report adds that the youngster dreams of playing in the Premier League.
Wilshere to consult Wenger ahead of next step
Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will speak to Arsene Wenger as he bids to find a new club.
Wilshere was tipped for big things after being given his debut by Wenger at just 16 years old, but his career has been ravaged by injury and he left West Ham United last month after the Hammers agreed to terminate his contract.
“I spoke to Arsene when we were negotiating everything with West Ham and he was helpful,” he told the BBC.
