Edu and Artet delighted with new signing – Arsenal agree fee for La Liga star – New arrival ‘great Arsenal signing’
Here is a roundup of the top Arsenal news and gossip from icfootballnws that we think you guys may have missed today –
Paul Scholes has claimed that the signing of Leandro Trossard is a great signing for Arsenal .
Trossard had entered the final 18 months of his deal on the south coast after Brighton triggered a clause in his contract – but he was done at the club after falling out of favour at the club.
That allowed Arsenal to swoop in and offer him the chance to play for one of the big clubs – test himself at the top of the Premier League – and maybe add some silverware by the end of the season.
Now – Scholes has opened up and admitted that Trossard is a great signing for Arsenal – but they still need to add one or two new players this January window: ‘When you are going for titles, you need strong squads, you need players who can come in and replace players,’ Scholes told Premier League Productions.
‘Those players that come in might not always be as good as the starters, but they might even be better from the bench.
‘When Leandro Trossard came on for Gabriel Martinelli, I didn’t think it weakened Arsenal, it really didn’t.
‘So I think Trossard is a great signing. Two or three more would really boost this team to go on and win the Premier League.’
He scored 25 goals and added 14 assists in three-and-a-half years at Brighton – so he is a man that has the ability to score and create – which is what Mikel Arteta wanted.
It is a great signing by Arsenal that is for sure guys
