New Arsenal signing Sambi Lokonga is a natural leader, says Anderlecht chief

Arsenal have signed a ‘natural leader’ in Sambi Lokonga, according to Anderlecht’s sporting director Peter Verbeke.

Earlier this week, the Gunners finally completed their £17 million deal to sign the 21-year-old midfielder.

Lokonga is regarded as one of the most promising young midfielders in Europe and captained Anderlecht last season.

And Verbeke has backed Lokonga to acclimatise to the Premier League in a similar fashion to Romelu Lukaku and Youri Tielemans, who both came through Anderlecht’s academy.

‘Sambi of course is a very good player,’ Verbeke told Sky Sports News. ‘He is one of the top talents coming from our academy.

‘He can play as a defensive midfield player, he can also play as a box-to-box player.

‘Especially in the last two seasons at the club, he has developed really well.

‘Sambi is someone who is good on the ball. His technical ability in tight spaces is really good, good short and long passing.
‘Sambi has been the captain of the club of a very young Anderlecht, of course.

‘He was still a natural captain and leader on and off the pitch, and he is someone that I would say is really open-minded.

‘I think he will settle in really well in a new club because his technical ability is that good, I don’t think there will be any adaptation problems.

‘Of course, the Premier League is a higher level than the Belgian league, but the boys that have been developed at Anderlecht like Youri Tielemans and Romelu Lukaku, I think they settled in well because they got a good education at the Anderlecht academy.

‘So, I expect Sambi will do the same thing.’
