Arsenal Announce Signing of Mathieu Flamini As Free Agent to Shore Up Midfield: Daily Soccer Report

Arsenal have announced the signing of Mathieu Flamini as a defensive midfielder to shore up the holes and injuries that have riddled the club in previous weeks.

Flamini returns to the club as a free agent, where he helped the Gunners win the FA Cup in 2005.

“We’re very pleased Mathieu has agreed to re-join us,” Arsène Wenger said. “He is a player of real quality, with a fantastic work rate and great mentality. As we know, Mathieu is a strong midfielder, but is also is comfortable playing in defense too. He is a very good addition to our squad.”

The French midfielder will be an excellent fit in midfield for the Gunners to give the club more steel in midfield where they’ve been lacking. While Flamini isn’t a big splash in the transfer market, Arsenal have picked up a type of player that they desperately need.
