The former Malaga midfielder is an astute acquisition by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, a replacement for Cesc Fabregas and a man who can light up the Premier League in 2012-13
Agreed wanted city to sign him months ago was banging on about it on another site when they listed your number 1 signing of the summer would be and I put this fella. He has changed Arsenal from a top 4 team to contenders for the title in my eyes. What he did for Malaga last season was immense!
Still think the title might be a little out of reach, but I hope we can at least be able to count on one hand the points difference between us and the leaders during the run-in.
