Official + medical passed! Arsenal completes transfer new no. 10, deal signed & sealed

Arsenal have completed the transfer of another star midfielder.

And this time it is Jon Toral who has joined Scottish giant Rangers on loan for the rest of this season.

Like Hector  Bellerin, Toral came through Barcelona’s youth system before signing for the Gunners in 2014 – despite being highly rated, he is yet to make his debut for Arsenal.

The attacking midfielder does have plenty of experience at Championship level though, having spent the 2014-15 season at Brentford.

He played 34 matches for the Bees, scoring six times.

Toral spent the first half of the current campaign at Spanish top-flight side Granada, but only started five times in La Liga and this is not good for his development.

He joined Rangers with Mark Warburton’s side currently second in the Scottish Premiership.

Warburton said: “I think his best position is No.10 in behind the striker.

“He can play wide right or wide left or at No.8 so we have that flexibility and the options to look at.

“We’re delighted with that and there’s no doubt he’s a quality act and fingers crossed I hope the Ibrox crowd are looking forward to seeing him play.”
