Arsenal have had a very productive summer transfer window in terms of the team's input. However with the output, things have not been as successful for the team.
The reason for the success is that Arsenal managed to sign three experienced players who would add a lot of offensive firepower to the Gunners' already strong attack.
The negative point of this summer is that Arsenal lost their best player from last season.
Robin van Persie had his best career season last season in which he scored 30 goals to win the Premier League golden boot and managed to captain the Gunners to a third place finish after an absolutely horrendous start to the 2011-2012 campaign.
The prolific scoring Dutchman will head to Arsenal's Premier League rivals, Manchester United. Ultimately, it isn't the ideal situation for the Gunners as it allows the Red Devils to strengthen their already strong squad and increase their chances at winning a title.
This would just make things difficult for Arsenal's title hopes and wishes to win a trophy. For more on that subject, click here.
Now, the three key signings that Arsenal has made will need to have a great first season in Arsenal colors. They have already demonstrated what they are capable of doing in their pre-season match against Cologne. Each of them are starting to establish themselves in their respective positions and will be looking to make positive impacts from those positions.
