Arsenal sign Tomas Rosiky

Arsenal have completed the signing of Czech attacking midfielder Tomas Rosicky from Borussia Dortmund.

The arrival of Rosicky gives Arsenal options both in the centre of the park and on the left wing. Like the conversion of Aliaksendr Hleb from a central midfielder to a right winger, it is believed Wenger will try to mould Rosicky in the same way, albeit on the opposite flank. At the same time Rosicky can be used in a five man midfield, playing alongside Cesc Fabregas, just behind Henry. He could also be rotated with Fabregas in the 4-4-2 formation in which he plays off Gilberto.

Rosicky has an excellent shot and can add another dimension to Arsenal's play by scoring from outside the box. He has good strength, pace and an eye for the killer pass, and all in all, will probably turn out to be another jewel in Wenger's young squad.

Congrats, Mr. Wenger. You have just signed one of the best young talents in Europe.
Just a little worried about Rosicky. He has, in the past, shown a tendency to resist any changes to his natural game and position. If made to do so, he may not acheive his best. Hleb too is yet to display even half of the ability he showed before joining Arsenal, though he looks as though he might get there within a season or two.
