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.

Mathieu Flamini

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.

    Wenger’s spent all summer off-loading deadwood and now he’s resigning it.

      He’s not “deadwood”, but a useful squad member, even if he can no longer replicate the work-rate of that last season with us during his previous stay.

      How come Flamini is deadwood? That’s just nuts. The player is more than capable of reproducing the form he had in his last season for us, something you OBVIOUSLY know nothing about. A player hits his peak at 28, it is when a team will get the best of that player. Flamini turned 29 just 5 months ago. Flamini is tough, he tackles hard, and when an opposition team breaks, Flamini is the fast aggressive player you want set loose on it.

      He is also solid cover for left fullback position.

        Flamini was awful when he was with us – apart from half a season – his last one with us before he left for more money elsewhere. I saw him play many times and I will believe your description of his alleged abilities when I actually see him performing like this. He’s hardly top top quality anyway – and it was this sort of player that Wenger and the other clown Gazidis claimed that they were going to sign.

          Agree with the clown part but Flamini had performed well even before that. He was made for midfield but he played as left back in out best ever Champions League run. Remember his performance against Real Madrid? Beckham was in his pockets..! But whether he can repeat the heroics is something left to see. Now my attitude is .. GET THEM IN (someone) Beggars cannot be choosers.

      I think he realises that. It’s not as if there is a choice between a striker and Flamini.

    it’s a good addition to the club, but I think that’s not enought to the defensive midfield, we have buy another top dm n striker. Then we will manage since it’s the club managements career n we love the team.
