Of the players transferred-in, just £175m (14%) relate to intra-Premier League transfers, a record low proportion across the history of the summer transfer window.
Those players will join an Arsenal dressing room that is already stacked with top-class talent, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil making up the Gunners' ranks.
Newcastle have again made a profit from player trading thanks to the sales of Mitrovic and Mikel Merino, with Benitez expressing his concern for the Magpies' prospects this season after a 4-0 friendly thrashing by Braga earlier this month.
"Defensively: first it is to be organised, recover the ball quickly".
"We chose to spend, because we should spend, because we had seven, eight players more than 31-years-old".
"For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought".
The ability for those in Europe to continue strengthening opens the door for a whole host of possibilities, including players playing in English football still leaving their current post to ply their trade overseas. "I think maybe another signing or two".
Wolves found themselves behind in the first half of their opener against Everton on Saturday evening after Richarlison prodded home a debut goal for the Toffees inside 20 minutes. Maybe next season we will go to the transfer window a little more active.
It was then down to Chelsea to make the final decision as Hazard wanted to leave and Real Madrid wanted the club to name their price.
"My job is to be sure that the players give everything, and the fans have to be behind the team", Benitez said.
"For that this news for me is positive and his commitment to Arsenal is the most important". But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it].
"I know my responsibilities and I know also the coach has given me freedom to play my football in attack, so I know what I have to do on the pitch".
Emery's philosophy will be put to the test immediately this season as his side takes on champions Manchester City on Sunday.
