Albert Sambi Lokonga has already had the chance to train alongside his new teammates after his transfer to Arsenal was confirmed on Monday afternoon.
After the announcement of a deal worth up to €22m which has seen the midfielder sign a four-year contract that includes an extension option, Arsenal have now shared snaps of Lokonga in action.
The club’s new No.23 was seen duelling alongside Willian and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in training matches, in a gallery of images that can be seen in full here.
