After a disastrous match yesterday versus Swansea City last night and conceding 3 goals to the bottom of the table team, Arsenal started off the morning announcing a striker!

After Arsenal’s failed social media announcement last week with Henrikh Mhkitaryan we woke up to this to before the first pot of coffee was brewed

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger than breaking our transfer record, possibly the bigger and more important news was broken by Ornstein to make this a grand Arsenal day indeed. #WeveGotOzil

File these next two under ‘were never going to happen’

To finish off the day, Arsenal decided to say goodbye to 3 French compatriots (making a total of 4 for this window). The JEFF is headed to Ligue 1 on loan, Debuchy to St. Etienne and the heartbreaker of Olivier Giroud to London rivals Chelsea.

And don’t forget folks, always do your scouting beforehand or you’ll end up like our friend, Jose.

And just for laughs...Landon Donovan not only came out of retirement to play for Club Leon, he also got the biggest hair transfer of the January window! Well played, Landon, well played.
