Whilst the rumour-mill has been going ape with whisperings that Cesc Fabregas wants to join, is about to join, won't be able to join because they can't afford it, Barcelona, the Gunners have been tying up their first summer transfer of 2010.
In the worst kept secret in football, Marouane Chamakh today officially became an Arsenal player.
It was rumoured that Chamakh was set to join the Gunners last summer and then in the January transfer window, but Bordeaux were unwilling to sell for a reasonable price, and with the strikers contract up in the summer, Wenger decided to hold on and get him free of charge just a few months later.
Arsène Wenger said: "We are delighted that Marouane Chamakh has joined us. He is a player we have admired for some time now and I know he will provide our squad with great quality. Chamakh has proved he is a great player with his performances for Bordeaux and Morocco in recent seasons and we`re all looking forward to him joining us.
'Chamakh is a striker of real quality and has all the attributes suited to come to England and do very well. He is also a fighter, not only a good football player, but a fighter as well. He is very good in the air and also a good team player. He is a great addition to our squad."
