Anton Ferdinand Names One of Arsenal’s Best Ever Signings After Champions League Draw with Bayern Munich

Anton Ferdinand asserts that Arsenal’s signing of a £20 million player under Mikel Arteta stands out as one of their finest squad investments, a sentiment underscored by the Gunners’ spirited 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening.

This pivotal move has bolstered Arsenal’s prospects in the Champions League, with their commendable performance in the first leg at the Emirates positioning them well for a potential semi-final berth.

After Bukayo Saka fell in the penalty area in the closing moments, some may feel Arsenal deserved more. They trailed 2-1 at halftime, but Mikel Arteta’s adjustments appeared to shift the game’s momentum.

Oleksandr Zinchenko made an impact replacing Jakub Kiwior, while Gabriel Jesus assisted Leandro Trossard for the equalising goal after their substitutions.

Anton Ferdinand Says Leandro Trossard Has Been One of Arsenal’s Best Signings

Trossard has demonstrated a talent for scoring crucial goals for Arsenal, notably netting the equaliaer in the last match against Porto. If the team accomplishes something remarkable this season, his goal against Bayern could be viewed as a defining moment.

Anton Ferdinand, speaking on The Take On, suggested that the initial £20 million signing of the Belgian is among the finest deals orchestrated by Edu and Arteta.

“It was no coincidence when Trossard came on and Jesus came on there was a difference. Jesus, I thought was brilliant when he came on. And Trossard, I think, has been probably one of the best signings Arsenal have made in terms of their squad,” he said.

“Because he doesn’t sulk when he doesn’t play. And when he comes on and when he plays, he delivers.”

AFCN Thought

Undoubtedly, when evaluating Arsenal’s recent deals, few can rival the value pound for pound achieved in this deal. While acquisitions like Kai Havertz and Declan Rice have proven their worth, Trossard has exceeded all expectations.

With an impressive tally of 26 goal involvements across 60 matches in various competitions for the Gunners, he demonstrates remarkable versatility, capable of contributing effectively across the attacking front.

Even if his final cost reaches the full £27 million, it undeniably stands as an exceptional bargain.
