Arsenal FC: Ranking Arsene Wenger's Summer Buys

Arsenal's start to the season was marred by the departures of regulars Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy.

To try to ease the Gunners' players and fans' pain, Arsene Wenger made seven summer purchases, not counting loan deals.

These players all played some kind of role in a year when the Gunners finished a surprising third. Buying players in their prime has never been synonymous with Wenger's name, but he still did so this season.

I will grade and rank the seven players who were added to Arsenal on the long-term. This does not include loan deals for Yossi Benayoun or Thierry Henry because part of the grade is determined by short-term impact.

The moves for players that have started in the academy, on the reserves or immediately out on loan will not be included either.
