Morning all.

Leandro Trossard became an Arsenal player yesterday and could make his debut against Man Utd tomorrow afternoon. The transfer fee in comparison to Mudryk is irrelevant in my opinion because his move is about one thing, what will he bring to this Arsenal team for the rest of the season and those ahead. Much is being written about his personality but Mikel Arteta is no fool, if he thought Trossard would be a problem, there’s no way the Belgian would be at Arsenal. One little fallout doesn’t make a bad attitude.

I’m really excited to get started. This is a big club and I’m ready to show the fans what I can do. Everyone has seen how well we’re doing already and I’m here to help achieve their dreams – including myself. I’m going to take it day by day, work hard and try to help the team to achieve their goals. [I want to] get better as well. I know the manager is a great coach and I hope to be involved in doing great things and getting better as a player in every aspect. I’m really excited to see the fans in the stadium. I hope I can give you my all. I want to try and create as many magic moments as possible, and hopefully we can celebrate together.

Nice mention of the fans and should he get minutes tomorrow against Manchester Utd, I’m sure he’ll feel the level of support Mikel Arteta and his players are getting.

Also making the Arsenal headlines is the reported signing of Jakub Kiwior. Contracts are being signed with Spezia, fee in excess of €20m with add-ons. Understand Kiwior has agreed personal terms on five year deal — medical will be completed in the next 48 hours.

Both David Ornstein and Fabrizio Romano have this story on their social media feed. I know zero about the player other than he’s a central defender/central defensive midfielder. Oh, and he’s 6’ 2”, 22 years old and Polish. Kiwior is expected to arrive in London later today when he’ll undergo a medical and sign his contract. True or not I don’t know but don’t shoot the messenger which in this case is Sky Italy.

We needed bodies, strength as well as quality and whilst I’ve no idea what Kiwior plays like, Trossard will bring something different to our attack. Here he is in action against Arsenal.

Who’d have thought it, no sooner had we been pipped at the post by Chelsea for the signing of Mudryk, the club have gone and signed an experienced attacking player who is ready to go. Arsenal got this deal done so quickly, I’d barely had time to dry my Mudryk tears.

Trossard knows the league, he’s seen how Arsenal play and he’s mature without being too old. Excellent signing in my opinion. Kiwior on the other hand is young but before he’s written off as he’s relatively unknown, Mikel Arteta and the club must have seen something in him they like. The last few transfer windows have been brilliant I think and having seen the type of players Arsenal have signed, there’s absolutely no reason to think Trossard and Kiwior will be anything other than two more exciting additions to the squad.
