Edu imposed on Arteta the signing of Thomas

Thomas has had a major impact on Arsenal. The club is delighted with his signing and even Aubameyang has surrendered to the Ghanaian. “He is very strong physically, but also so good with the ball, that has been surprising,” he said. For all the specialists in the Premier, Thomas was a much needed signing to finish compacting Arteta's Arsenal. But according to L'Equipe, the technician had a different idea. The French newspaper explains in an analysis of Aouar's situation at Lyon, that the talent could have ended up at Arsenal in Thomas' place in the last transfer window.

L'Equipe explains that Aouar was Arteta's obsession to finish propping up his squad. However, the media assures that the criteria of Edu Gaspar, the club's director, finally prevailed. The leader and former player preferred the incorporation of Thomas and would have imposed his idea on that of the coach, always according to the French newspaper. Thus, Aouar has stayed in Lyon and Arsenal launched to pay the Thomas clause, 50 million. For now, it seems that Arsenal, in short, hit the nail on the head with the hiring of the African.
