Arsenal’s £140m Summer Spending Spree Explained In A Comprehensive Twitter Thread

A Twitter user has created an incredible thread to spotlight how Arsenal managed to splash out £140m this summer.

Gunners fans were furious after initial reports suggested that the club would only have £40m to spend on new signings.

But Arsenal smashed their club-record fee to snap up Nicolas Pepe and added the likes of Dani Ceballos, William Saliba, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz to their spending spree.

Twitter user Swiss Ramble has put meticulous research into explaining how Arsenal splashed out over £100m in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal's transfer window has handed club boss Unai Emery a major boost in securing a top-four finish in the Premier League next season.

The Gunners kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win over Newcastle, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the winner in the second half.

The Arsenal manager has admitted that his side will continue to do business in the transfer window, despite being unable to sign any new players.

According to Emery, the Gunners could offload some more players before the transfer window closes for other European clubs.

"In the next 20-25 days, some players will leave. It's the reason, I want to close our squad clearly," he said.

Emery's men will resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they host Burnley at the Emirates.

Will Arsenal finish in the top four this season?
