Arsenal Seal Second Signing As Midfielder Agrees £40k-A-Week Three-Year Deal
Arsenal have sealed their second major signing of the summer after Mathieu Flamini agreed to rejoin the club on a free transfer, according to reports today.
As we enter the final stages of the summer transfer window, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are set to announce their second signing of the summer.
Arsenal have sealed their second signing of the summer after Mathieu Flamini agreed to rejoin the club on a free transfer, according to reports today.
Te Frenchman became a free agent in June after rejecting a new deal at AC Milan and has been training with the Gunners in recent weeks to maintain his fitness as he assessed his options.
It appears the 29-year-old has done enough to convince Arsene Wenger that he can still cut it at the top level with the Daily Mail one of several media outlets who’re reporting that the midfielder has now agreed terms over a £40,000-a-week, three-year deal and will now begin his second stint in north London.
Flamini originally joined Arsenal back in 2004 and went on to make over 100 first team appearances before an acrimonious departure in 2008 saw him snub a new contract in favour of making a free transfer move to Milan.
It remains to be seen how the player will be received by the Emirates faithful now that the tables have turned and he’s joined the likes of Sol Campbell, Jens Lehmann and Thiery Henry in re-joining the club.
The versatile Frenchman is not the big-money signing Arsenal fans are expecting this summer but he will no doubt prove to be a useful addition as he’ll be able to cover at both full-back areas as well as in midfield.
