When Arsenal added free signing Mathieu Flamini, it appeared to sum up everything which was wrong with the club's transfer policy.

Spurs had also added Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado.

It was supposed to signal a summer of change, as Arsenal inexplicably failed to spend, before yesterday.

In between, Arsenal defeated Spurs when it mattered, winning 1-0 in the Premier League fixture at the weekend thanks to an Olivier Giroud goal.

Tottenham subsequently confirmed the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world record £85 million, which appeared to trigger Arsenal's blockbuster deal.

Arsenal last night wrapped up the signing of German international Mesut Ozil, a player Jose Mourinho described as the 'best number 10 in Europe'.
