Per The Athletic, the club usually goes for players that are much younger and can improve.

However, the 28-year-old Real Sociedad ace is a tactical fit for the way Arteta wants Arsenal to play.

He is seen as the ideal player to rotate with Jorginho in that passing midfielder role in Arteta’s 4-3-3 formation.

Declan Rice is the other midfielder, while Martin Odegaard plays the furthest forward of the three.
