Confirmed Arsenal signings and departures in the summer transfer window (2022)

The Gunners have been quite active during this transfer window, actively entering the market and acquiring a number of vital players.

Mikel Arteta and his team at the Emirates Stadium failed to qualify for the Champions League last season due to poor late-season play.

Although they ultimately had to settle for the Europa League, Arsenal entered the transfer market with the objective of finishing in the top four.

Arsenal now sits atop the table with 15 points out of a possible 15 after five games played so far this season. 

The majority of their success in the Premier League may be attributed to their remarkable transfer window.

The Gunners were able to acquire two players from their Premier League opponents, Manchester City.

Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko moved from the Etihad to the Emirates for a total of little over €87 million, and they have been the team’s driving force thus far. 

Jesus has been a revelation for Arsenal, scoring three goals and assisting on three more in just five appearances.

The club also pursued youth, acquiring Fabio Viera from Porto for €35 million and Marquinhos from Sao Paulo for $3.5 million.

Additionally, they spent €6.36 million for 28-year-old MLS goalie Matt Turner from New England.

The almost €130 million invested during the transfer window may be a big sum for the Arsenal Stadium’s leadership, but the performances on display will undoubtedly undermine any opposition.

Arsenal only generated $23 million from player exits this window

The Gunners have already loaned out a number of fringe players, with Nicolas Pepe to Nice in France’s Ligue 1 being the most notable. 

He will not be the only Arsenal player to play in France this season, as Nuno Tavares, who also left the Gunners on loan, has joined him.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles was loaned to Southampton, Pablo Mari was loaned to Monza, Auston Trusty was loaned to Birmingham, and Runar Alex Runarsson was sent to Alanyaspor.

Alexandre Lacazette is another another prominent player to leave Arsenal for France. However, the 31-year-old forward departed the Gunners on a free transfer to join Lyon, where he will play against Pepe and Tavares’ respective teams.

Hector Bellerin has also left the club on a free transfer, joining Barcelona near the end of the transfer deadline.

Matteo Guendouzi will rejoin with Nuno Tavares at Marseilles after the 23-year-old midfielder’s €11 million transfer to the Ligue 1 club. Lucas Torreira also left Arsenal for Galatasaray in the Super Lig for a transfer fee of €6 million.

Former Gunners No. 1 goalkeeper Bernd Leno has also left the club, joining newly-promoted Fulham for a transfer fee of €3.6 million. Stuttgart paid €3.2 million to bring 24-year-old Konstantinos Mavropanos to the Bundesliga.

Ins: Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner, Marquinhos

Outs: Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Hector Bellerin (free), Alexandre Lacazette (free), Nicolas Pepe (loan), Nuno Tavares (loan), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (loan), Pablo Mari (loan), Auston Trusty (loan), Runar Alex Runarsson (loan)
