Arsenal are perched at the top of the Premier League table after a stunning first half of the season.
And the club have elected to dip into the market to strengthen Mikel Arteta’s hand for the second half of 2022/23, which could see the Gunners’ land their first Premier League title since 2004.
The north Londoners agonsingly missed out on their top target Mykhailo Mudryk, who was closing in on a deal to move to the Emirates before Chelsea hijacked their bid for the Ukrainian international at the eleventh hour.
Here is a round-up of every deal Arsenal have made during the January transfer window 2023 so far.
Which players have Arsenal signed so far?
Here are the players Arsenal have signed in the January 2023 transfer window.
The 28 year-old was the club’s first new signing through the door after completing his switch from Brighton on January 20.
It is thought Arsenal have paid the Seagulls an initial £20m for Trossard’s services, with the deal potentially reaching as much as £27m in add-ons.

Trossard scored seven goals in 16 games for Brighton before heading off with Belgium to the World Cup, including a hat-trick against Liverpool at Anfield in October.
The forward, who has reportedly signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the option for a further year, made over 120 appearances for Brighton after moving from Genk in 2019.
Speaking to the club’s website, Arteta said: ‘It is good work from everyone at the club to complete the signing of Leandro.

Kiwior, 22, featured for Poland at the World Cup in Qatar and such is his versatility, has also been deployed as a defensive midfielder.
Speaking after securing the switch, Kiwior told club media: ‘When I saw my name on an Arsenal shirt for the first time, I just laughed! I was so happy to see my name on the shirt of such a huge club.
