There are reports that Arsenal has completed the signing of their second summer capture. The gunners who are yet to make any major signing aside Yaya Sanogo have decided to retake Mathieu Flamini on a free transfer for 3 years, some reports have it that the contract is for 2 years but reports reaching us is that the contract is actually for 3 years. Flamini has been training with Arsenal for the last 2 months after refusing to renew his contract with AC Milan. He had played for Arsenal for 3 years before leaving on a free transfer to join AC Milan who is now joining Arsenal from.
Arsenal have been in the market for a new defensive midfielder and have had bids rejected for Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye, Paul Pogba and Geoffrey Kondogbia from Sevilla. Although the signing of Flamini on a 3 years contract will not be the type of news Arsenal fans are expecting after been promised marquee signings, he is however good enough to fill the defensive midfield position which Arsenal have been short on in the last 2 seasons.
With Arteta and Diaby out with injury, Flamini is a worthy and experience defensive midfielder who can as well play as a centre back and a left back.
