In a change from Arsenal's usual penchant for only buying fifteen-year-old Barcelona C players, the Gooners have apparently signed SC Freiburg's Matthias Ginter - a six-foot tall German midfielder and defender. Pretty much the antithesis of their usual targets, Ginter is tall, strong and looks like he might be the man to finally sure up the Gunners' dodgy defence whether he players as a holding-midfielder or in the heart of the back-four.
Enjoy this scrappy, amateur video of a great header scored by Ginter versus Augsburg (which we think typifies the German's rough and ready attitude to football but is also practically the only video of him available online).
