Arsenal fans were treated to something unusual yesterday; the arrival of not one, but two, new signings.

However, just as Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez are arriving at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger has already looked to balance the books a little with the sale of Serge Gnabry.

The German winger's move to Werder Breman was officially confirmed by Arsenal this afternoon for a fee believed to be around £8 million.

Considering the youngster's recent performances at the Olympics, as well as the huge fees that have been paid out over the summer transfer window, it is fair to say a lot of Arsenal fans aren't particularly pleased with Wenger's latest piece of business.

Taking to social media to respond to the 21-year-old's departure, there was a strong feeling that either Gnabry should have been kept in the fold in north London, or the club should have at least recouped a much higher fee for a player they've helped develop over the years.

Had Gnabry's sale come at the start of summer, few Arsenal fans would have been up in arms. After finding first team opportunities hard to come by in his first three seasons with the Arsenal senior squad, the German was loaned out to West Brom last year.

However, his performances for Germany at the 2016 Olympics in Rio this summer had seen him jump up in Arsenal fans' estimations.

Helping his country to a silver medal in Brazil, Gnabry was named Germany's player of the tournament and finished as joint top scorer in the tournament with six goals. 

Just a few days ago, Wenger himself had gone on record to say he was looking to keep the youngster on Arsenal's books this summer.

Clearly things have changed over the past few days, and a lot of Arsenal fans aren't particularly impressed with the direction they have turned.
