Benayoun on loan to Arsenal and Arteta also close to signing!? Mertesacker to wear No. 4 shirt

After announcing earlier that Per Mertesacker deal was pending formal completion, Arsenal has now officially announced that the deal is completed. He will wear the number 4 shirt.

Arsene Wenger on signing him said:

“We are delighted to welcome Per Mertesacker to the Club. He is a German international with vast experience and strength and is good on the floor and in the air. I believe he will be well-suited to the Premier League and a tremendous asset to the team.”

Mertesacker, on completing his move, said:

“I had a great time at SV Werder Bremen and I’m grateful to the club. Moving to London enables me to fulfil a dream and a further step in my career. The Premier League has always represented a great challenge for me.”

And in a major development, talks with Arteta have started again according to Skysports. In a major twist in our favor, Arteta is now only a few minutes from signing for Arsenal.

It is being reported that the deal is agreed and only wages and personal stuff is to be decided. Arteta himself is pushing in for the move. Which means this deal is well and truly done!

This comes on the back of Benayoun talks, on whom the latest report is we have signed him on a season long loan.

Stay tuned as the confirmation comes in!

Update: It is now confirmed that Benayoun has signed for us. This is what the player tweeted just a few minutes ago:

“I sign with arsenal,very happy and excited about it,but now my head is only in the game against grecce on friday,thanks for the support.”
