Photo: Arsenal’s New Signing – Squad Number Confirmed

By on February 1, 2014

In the end it was a hugely disappointing transfer window as the only new addition we managed was the loan signing of Swedish veteran Kim Kallstrom.

The 31-year-old has joined from Spartak Moscow until the end of the season and will provide us with an experienced back-up option in midfield.  Arsene Wenger decided to make the move for the former Lyon midfielder after Aaron Ramsey was ruled out for up to six weeks with a thigh injury.

Kallstrom certainly isn’t the big-money signing most fans were hoping for but he’s a respected international who’s racked up over 100 caps for Sweden, so he might turn out to be a useful addition – particularly when you consider how light we are in the centre of the park at present. Plus, he’s eligible to play in the Champions League.

It’s now been confirmed that the Swede will wear the No.29 jersey – which happens to be Marouane Chamakh’s old number. Let’s hope he turns out to be more of a success than the previous owner.

    Am very sad that we could land any striker. I hope our mid fielders will help to produce the needed goals that will hand the trophy to us at the end of the season. Up gunners

    Wenger is not that good you know folks. Let’s just start getting to grips with this fact. He’s more of a financier than a football manager. This team is crying out for reinforcements over the run-in but what does he do; get us a 31 yr old (quite contrary to his ethos) that will probably not come on the pitch throughout the duration of his loan time here. Just ask Emilio the GK he brought on loan in the summer. We are almost a sniffing distance of our first trophy for years and this manager seems not interested! £24.00M 3year contract for making the Arsenal Board money and the fans trophy-less; no thanks!!!!!

    A sense of perspective is needed boys. Apart from Mata which big names moved anywhere in Europe. The players that we already have have done fantastically well throughout the calendar year 2013 and really do have the togetherness as a squad to pull something off. There is actually a pro Arsenal! article in the mail online by Mathew Morlidge today which explains Arsenes’ motives very well. Let’s all support the boys and enjoy the ride!
