Arsenal have presented their first official signing of the summer, Vlad Dragomir.
On the day rivals Liverpool announced the £29 million signing of a Brazilian international, Arsenal have unveiled the arrival a 16 year-old Romanian - does it get any more Arsenal?
Following the big-name acquisition in recent summers like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil - along with the imminent arrival of Petr Cech - Arsenal fans may have started to believe that their transfer policy may be changing.
Gone are the days of Arsene Wenger plucking unheard of teenagers from obscure continental leagues, right? Wrong. Fans on Twitter immediately began to pass comment on how incredible a name Arsenal's new number seven has:
