Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger wasn’t all talk and no action in this transfer window opening and managed to sign an attacking midfielder as he planned from the very beginning. Wilshere’s setback forced his hand and the Frenchman didn’t hesitate in signing Dortmund wonderkid Thomas Eisfeld.
The attacking midfielder is coming from Dortmund’s academy which is well known for the incredible midfielders it produces starting with Rosicky, Reus and ending with Gotze.
“I feel very proud to have signed for Arsenal. This is a great club, with many great players, and I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal,” he told the club’s official website.
“It’s a real honour to be team mates with the great players at Arsenal, and also training everyday with players like Tomas Rosicky – who I grew up watching play at Dortmund. I will give it everything I have here and do my best to make the manager, players and fans happy.
“I would also like to thank Borussia Dortmund, where I played for the last seven years, for everything they have done for me. I had a great time there, and there were many wonderful coaches who helped me get to where I am today.”
Welcome Eisfeld, and may you give your all for the colors we all love. People were writing Chamberlain off before they could see his amazing skills, so don’t make the same mistake with the 19-year-old midfielder.
