Leandro Trossard has now revealed his favourite position after completing his January transfer move to Arsenal from Brighton.
Trossard has moved to north London in a £27million deal with the Premier League leaders paying £20m up front with another £7m in add-ons.
The 28-year-old attacker joins Mikel Arteta’s side on a a four-and-a-half-year deal with the option for an additional year.
The Gunners decided to sign Trossard after missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk, who signed for Chelsea following a lengthy bidding war.
‘I like to be in the pocket behind the striker,’ Trossard told Arsenal’s website on Friday. ‘On the wings, I can explore myself as well.
‘I’m comfortable in either of those positions but if I were to choose, behind the striker – but it all depends on the system. ‘I think I’m good in 1v1s. I’m composed in the box, so if I get chances, I can finish them off.
‘I can hopefully help the team to win tough games – I’m great in tight spaces. I’m quite experienced as well, so I hope I can bring that to the team as well.’

Trossard, who has provided seven goals and three assists across 16 Premier League matches this campaign, added: ‘I’m really excited to get started.
‘This is a big club and I’m ready to show the fans what I can do. Everyone has seen how well we’re doing already and I’m here to help achieve their dreams – including myself.
‘I’m going to take it day by day, work hard and try to help the team to achieve their goals. [I want to] get better as well.
‘I know the manager is a great coach and I hope to be involved in doing great things and getting better as a player in every aspect.
‘I’m really excited to see the fans in the stadium. I hope I can give you my all. I want to try and create as many magic moments as possible, and hopefully we can celebrate together.’
