Questions remain unanswered at Emirates.
Will Arsenal pursue another forward, or are they content with Gervinho as their lone attacking addition this summer? Will the goalkeeper position be upgraded and will Manuel Almunia finally move on?
Who will be the elite central defender to play alongside Thomas Vermaelen? Where is the veteran left back presence to replace Gael Clichy and to relieve injury-prone Kieran Gibbs?
Will Samir Nasri re-sign? Is this the last we've seen of Cesc Fabregas in an Arsenal jersey? What players could possibly replace them?
Going into the summer, there were some calls for an overhaul of much of the squad, but Wenger appears to have tinkered with the roster instead.
Meanwhile, injuries continue to pile up before the 2011-2012 season has even started. Jack Wilshere has an inflamed ankle, and might be out for more than a week. Abou Diaby, who had his share of struggles last season, could be sidelined until September with an ankle injury.
Fabregas continues to be nagged by his hamstring, and Wenger is worried about his star midfielder's focus after all of the chatter about a move to Barcelona. According to Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, Arsenal have until August 31st to make a decision on Fabregas, who has four years remaining on his contract. Arsenal value Fabregas at roughly £40 million but Barcelona have shown an unwillingness to exceed £35 million, and have gone as low as £26 million.
Overall, the Fabregas-to-Barcelona talk has been exhausting, with rare news that a deal is imminent.
As inactive as Arsenal may seem this summer, despite the calls for major changes, new additions are probably on the way. Reports of central defender Phil Jagielka of Everton and winger Juan Mata of Valencia being added seem plausible. However, no formal offer has been made for Mata who is expected to generate a fee of about £20 million.
According to Metro, Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood is interested in adding "a few" new players. Reportedly high on the list are Jagielka, Mata, and Blackburn defender Christopher Samba.
Wenger has been very clear that he wants to bring in a central defender all summer.
As for midfield, Daily Mail has added a pair of names to the list of rumours: Wolves winger Matt Jarvis and burgeoning young midfielder James McCarthy of Wigan. Daily Mirror also added that McCarthy has drawn interest from Arsenal, as well as London-rival Chelsea.
Arsenal have freed up some funds with the transfer of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, but will need more than the £1.1 million they received from the young striker to add a significant player.
There has been little recent talk of the much-rumoured transfer of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Southampton.
Everton and Sporting Lisbon were reportedly interested in forward Nicklas Bendtner, but there has been no recent news of a deal.
