Arsenal new signing midfielder better than Red Devil's World Cup winner Paul Pogba.

Gunners fans are already hailing Lokonga as 'better than Pogba' after an impressive showing against rivals Spurs.

The midfielder was making only his second start for the Arsenal following his £17M from Anderlecht last month.

Arbert made his debut on Wednesday during a friendly match with Watford at London Colney.

But his first real test came in the friendly clash with bitter rivals Tottenham.

Although Gunners were defeated 1-0, the 21-year old midfielder passed his test with flying colours.

The fans took to social media to hail the midfielder, with some Arsenal even comparing him to Red Devil's World Cup winner Paul Pogba.

Sambi is one of three players Gunners have signed so far this summer alongside Tavares and Ben White.

Arsenal have still faced doubts for their lack of attacking reinforcements and Arteta was quizzed about whether the club will sign anyone else before the start of the new season.

He said: "What we have is what we have to maximise and worrying about things we don't have at the moment, there's no point.

"My energy is all on the players we have, to make them better and make them a bigger threat and win matches."

Arsenal's boss also hinted that Newcastle are closing in on a £22M deal for a midfielder Willock.

The England midfielder was missing from the game against Spurs on Sunday despite training with the squad on Saturday.
