Arsenal have been linked with a host of names over the summer but it has to be said that the fans have been left underwhelmed with the business the Gunners have conducted so far.

The early signing of Granit Xhaka for a reported £30 million from Borussia Monchengladbach was certainly encouraging but since the arrival of the Swiss international Arsenal have only signed duo Takuma Asano and Rob Holding for a combined fee of around £5.5 million.

The capture of defender Holding from Bolton Wanderers did not capture the imagination of the Gunners’ faithful but it has to be said that the 20-year-old has managed to impress with his performances in pre-season.

Holding has played for the full 180 minutes during Arsenal’s tour of the United States so far and he managed to mark the 3-1 victory over Chivas Guadalajara on Monday with his first ever goal for the Gunners.

Arsenal fans have been encouraged by Holding’s performances in the USA and following his goal the fans of the North London giants have taken to Twitter to express their delight at the youngsters’ landmark achievement.
