Arsenal have made official the signing of Belgian youngster Albert Sambi Lokonga, who arrives from Anderlecht and, at 21, promises to be a Premier League warrior after being endorsed by Vincent Kompany and other experts from the Belgium national team.
The 21-year-old midfielder came through the Belgian club's youth ranks after joining in 2014 as a 15-year-old and signing his first professional contract in November 2017.
He made his first-team debut for Anderlecht in December 2017 and has been a regular in their side over the past two seasons, making a total of 78 appearances.
A Belgium Under-21 international, Albert was called up at senior level in March 2021 when he was an unused substitute against Greece. "I can't wait to play at the Emirates Stadium, I can't wait!" said the Belgian in his first words for Arsenal.
