There’s mixed feelings about the arrival of the Swede.
It’s been an extremely quiet January transfer window for Arsenal who have made their one and only signing in the shape of Spartak Moscow midfielder Kim Kallstrom.
The 31-year-old has joined the Gunners on-loan until the end of the season and there has been a mixed reaction from fans on Twitter.
Kim Kallstrom will wear the number 18 shirt at Arsenal. Last people to were that number: Cygan, Silvestere, Squilaci.
