Much was made of the massive transfer kitty Arsenal management were reportedly given to work with this summer.
According to Sami Mokbel of The Daily Mail, Wenger was allotted at least £70 million to make purchases, as well as being granted license to increase wages in order to build an ultra-competitive squad.
Despite a host of prolific names being mentioned as possible arrivals at the Emirates, thus far the only completed purchase has been 20-year-old Frenchman Yaya Sanogo.
Reaction from Gunners fans has ranged from underwhelmed to angry at this lack of movement, after so much was promised.
Wenger can already count on a squad strong enough to push for fourth place or higher, so even if no more players arrive, though it would disappoint many, it would not be a complete disaster.
The fact that there is real intent to become a big player on the transfer market once more, as demonstrated by the dogged pursuit of Luis Suarez, augurs well for Arsenal.
There is still plenty of time before the start of the EPL season on August 17, and the closing of the transfer window on August 31, for Wenger to complete some major signings.
And if he doesn't? He will have a much better idea in December of which areas of the squad need fortifying and plenty of cash with which to do it.
