Leandro Trossard is now an Arsenal player following confirmation of his transfer from Brighton and will be keen to start helping them in their title charge as soon as possible.
After missing out on initial target Mykhailo Mudryk, who signed for Chelsea instead, the Gunners turned their attention to the Belgian who was very much available after falling out with Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi.
With the club performing so well, he’ll have to make quite the early impression if he wants to break into the starting XI, so when will he first get the chance to impress Mikel Arteta?
Arsenal announced the deal sooner than expected and confirmed that all documentation has been submitted in the hope of having him registered in time to face Manchester United on Sunday.
If the paperwork ends up not being filed before the deadline for weekend games, his debut could end up being delayed and come against the other Manchester club, with an FA Cup fourth round ties against Manchester City going ahead on Friday 27 January.
