Arsene Wenger has been in search of a defensive midfielder and a striker for like three or four year, and now he has finally signed a midfielder who will add his excellent technical and leadership abilities to the team. It is believed that Arsenal have paid a sum around £30million for the 23-year-old Borussia Monchengladbach star.
