Mikel Arteta announces new Arsenal signing ‘just the type’ of player he has long wanted
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta praised January signing Jakub Kiwior as he is the type of left-sided centre-back he has long wanted.
The Gunners have been linked with so many players this transfer window and many fans have been hoping that a few players will be signed by Mikel Arteta.
Leandro Trossard is the latest player to join the Arsenal revolution – as the former Brighton star will add some much needed depth to that Gunners attack – and now fans have welcomed a new arrival.
Kiwior is a player that Arsenal have been tracking for a while now and after a few days of talks – the Gunners agreed to bring Kiwior to the Emirates in a deal that has cost the club £20 million
And after seeing the gifted young defender complete the move to the Emirates – Arteta has now opened up and admitted that he is just the type of left-side centre-back that he wanted at the club.
Arteta said: “It’s great that Jakub is joining us.
“He’s a young versatile defender who has shown huge potential and qualities with Spezia in Serie A, and also at international level with Poland.
“Jakub is a player who will give us strength and quality to our defensive unit”
We have not seen too much of the young man but we are certain that he will be impressive – the transfer business that Arsenal have done in recent windows just shows that they are looking at quality players.
the lad has a long way to go before he can be a regular starter at the club – but we are all excited to see just what he manages at Arsenal
