Lokonga tells Arteta his best position

New Arsenal signing, Albert Sambi Lokonga, has said his best position is in the no6 role at the base midfield.

Lokonga has put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the Gunners, in a deal believed to be worth £17m.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is rebuilding his midfield ahead of the 2021/2021 campaign, after Dani Ceballos returned to Real Madrid following the end of his loan spell and Granit Xhaka close to a move to Roma.

Lokonga, 21, comes in to provide some steel, potentially alongside Thomas Partey next season.

And while the Belgian is comfortable playing as a box-to-box midfielder, he has indicated his best position is in a deeper midfield role.

“I can play both. I can play as a six and I can play like a box-to-box.

“But people say that I’m better in the six position,” Lokonga told Arsenal Player.
