Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has reacted to the signing of new midfielder, Albert Sambi Lokonga.
Nectes Gospel Media had earlier reported that Arsenal signed Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht on Monday.
The 21-year-old joined the Gunners on a long-term contract and will wear the No 23 shirt at Arsenal.
Reacting, Arteta described the Belgium Under-21 international as a very intelligent player who has shown great maturity in his performances during his development.
“Albert is a very intelligent player who has shown great maturity in his performances during his development.
“He has been coached well by Vincent Kompany and his team at Anderlecht. I know Vincent very well and he talks so highly about Albert and the positive impact he had at Anderlecht in recent seasons.
“We are confident Albert’s ready for the next stage in his development and we are looking forward to welcoming a new member to our squad with his quality and presence,” Arteta told Arsenal’s website.
