Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta signed for Arsenal on transfer deadline day from Everton FC for a fee of £10m. Arteta was Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s final signing of the 2011 summer transfer window and the paperwork for his deal was completed just before the close of the window.
The Gunners have now released some pictures of Arteta modelling Arsenal’s new 125th anniversary kit as he modelled the 2011/12 strip at the London Colney training ground.
Arteta’s shirt number at Arsenal will be No.8.
Will Arteta be as successful at Arsenal as fellow Spaniard Cesc Fabregas? Only time will tell.
