After the signing of Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town, deals for Francis Coquelin, Oliver Giroud and Laurent Koscielny followed.
And reports have indicated that JACK WILSHERE could be forced to quit Arsenal next summer with Roma renewing their interest in the England midfielder.
And he could be followed out of the door by Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
All three players are in the final 18 months of their contracts and have yet to be offered new deals.
Starsport revealed last week how Arsenal are yet to make any contact with Wilshere about his future.
And that has left the door open for Roma, who almost signed him on deadline day only for the deal to break down at the last minute.
Wilshere agreed to move to Bournemouth on a season-long loan to prove his fitness and has started 14 league games this season, winning his place back in the England squad.
But Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain also face an uncertain future because, as with Wilshere, talks are yet to even begin with either player.
