Earlier today, Arsenal surprised their fans with the announcement of four players transfer deals. It’s been confirmed that the north London club have signed David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares and Dani Ceballos.
According to reports, Arsenal’s director said “David is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.”
Meanwhile, Mari also joined the Arsenal team on loan but it’s reports revealed he has signed a long term deal with the club. Reports also showed that the club decided to sign Mari because coach Arteta needed a left footed center half.
Edu said: “With Pablo we’re all disappointed he got injured at Manchester City. Since Mikel arrived here he was asking for a central defender who was left-footed.
“We were really pleased with Pablo – his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality. Unfortunately, he has that injury but of course we are really happy to keep him for the future.”
Cedric Soares joined Arsenal from Southampton on season loan in a deal that cost £1m. Unfortunately the Portuguese is yet to make a match day squad due to injury.
On the reason for signing Cedric Soares, club director said: “Cedric is also going to be an important player. He has been unlucky with the injuries but he is close to being ready and gives us more strength in the right-back position.”
Arsenal return to action with another way trip to Saint Mary’s stadium on Thursday to face Southampton.
