Arsenal have announced the signing of Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson on what is believed to be a five-year-deal.
Arsenal have been looking to replace Emi Martinez and many were underwhelmed at the Icelandic player’s profile but it seems like he is coming in to replace Matt Macey who is still heading for the exit door this summer.
Arsenal are also trying to sign Brentford’s David Raya.
Rúnarsson arrives from Dijon in France where he has made 45 first team appearances, conceding 78 goals.
He has, however, worked with Arsenal’s coach, Inaki Cana Pavon in the past.
Rúnarsson was in and out of the Dijon team last season, appearing in 11 of their 28 league games. He got a run in the side directly before lockdown, starting four in a row.
The 25-year-old is also an Iceland international, with five caps so far. He made the squad for the most recent international break, featuring on the bench against England and Belgium. However, his last start was in November 2018.
