Gonzalo Higuain's potential move to Arsenal is already one of the most prolonged transfer sagas.
Gunners fans are waiting with much anticipation for the transfer to go though - as it will be vital for progression at the Emirates.
Higuain is a proven goal scorer for club at Real Madrid, and country - very much an out-and-out striker with a clinical eye for goal.
He is not an English style centre-forward like, the man he is expected to replace in the Arsenal starting line up, Olivier Giroud - but Higuain will be more suited to the style of play at the Gunners.
In spite of the aerial prowess of Giroud, the team seldom could utilise his height by providing him quality crosses last season. Higuain loves scoring with his feet, and loves to score by the bucket load. He is expected to touch the heights of Van Persie in the Dutchman's last season at the club.
However, the Argentine may require a period of adaptation in the Premier League, with its physicality and quality of opposition. But having arrived from a big club like Real Madrid, he will have a solid big match temperament.
That is where Arsenal can hope to benefit in the immediate future because, in spite of scoring more than the previous season in the Premier League, without Van Persie, the goals in the big matches against direct competitors were hard to come by.
Giroud and Lukas Podolski, having completed one season at the club, may adapt further to the Premier League with the introduction of Higuain.
Higuain can benefit from the likes of Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere.
It is a season of hope and expectation for the fans, hope of a trophy and expectation of finally revelling in the transfer window.
