Albert Sambi Lokonga reveals his best playing position as he completes Arsenal transfer

On Monday Arsenal confirmed their second transfer of the summer, as they signed Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht. The two sides reached an agreement for a fee of €17.5m + €4.5m add ons. After completing his move the 21-year-old has shared his excitement as well as talked about his best playing position.
"Really happy because it was very long so I’m happy to be close to the end," Lokonga told Arsenal.com.   "It’s a big move because I've been playing for Anderlecht for 10 years so it’s going to be my first big move to another country.   "I heard about this (Arsenal interest) I think two games I has a hand with the president of the club. He told me about the interest of Arsenal.   "My lawyer also told me about the interest of Arsenal and I didn’t hesitate for one second. I told them excuse me but I will go there."  
"I can play both as a six and I can play like box to box. But yeah people say I'm better on the six position," he went on to add.   "I have to thank the coach and Edu because they really wanted me to be here.   "I know that they want to play with a lot of young guys. I know that Arsenal have a good academy and in Anderlecht we also have a good academy.   "A lot of young players with a lot of talent. So for me it’s not going to change a lot."
