By Arsenal Football Club's standards, this summer's activity in the transfer window has been something of a revelation.
Despite the shadow of the now nigh-on complete Robin van Persie transfer saga perennially hanging over their dealings, Arsenal have managed to acquire Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla—spending a figure estimated to be around £37million, give or take a couple million depending on your source.
The nature of these deals is in stark contrast to Arsene Wenger's mentality of spending much less than his Premier League cohorts, a philosophy he is practically synonymous with.
There are still at least two weeks of the transfer window left before it closes, and Arsenal have been linked with both buying new talents and letting existing ones go—the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Song have both been linked with moves to pastures new.
With that in mind, let's analyze five potential moves that would give Arsenal fans something to cheer about as we enter the post-van Persie era.
