Former Arsenal defender Armand Traore said in an interview that the team’s new addition Thomas and club legend Vieira have many similarities.
Traore said: "I'm very happy, I think all fans will be excited about it. Everyone knows Vieira, he is a club legend, Thomas and him have some similarities. I think they need someone like Thomas. For the player, he can play the role of the central axis, and he is also willing to do some dirty work for the team. He knows this is his job.
"The advantage of this guy is not only to destroy the opponent's offense, he can also help the team's offense. He has great technique, strong tackle ability, and full of strength. I also leave Arteta's work. I am very impressed. If you look at their lineup, you understand what they want to do. Last time I told you that Arsenal’s priority is to renew Aubameyang, and now they have done it. "
