The club announced via its official website, the signing of Goalkeeper Alex Runarsson who joins us on a four-year contract from French club Dijon.
Alex is an Iceland international, 25 year old and he joined the Dijon in July 2018. He recorded13 appearances for them in all competitions last season.
Alex started his career with KR Reykjavik in his home country. He went on to join FC Nordsjaelland in Denmark, where he made 62 appearances during a three-year spell, before moving to Dijon.
Technical director Edu said:
“We’re very pleased to welcome Alex to our squad. We have been monitoring him for some time and from the analysis, he has strong attributes that we look for in a goalkeeper and as a person.”
Mikel Arteta added: “We want to create healthy competition for places and we look forward to seeing Alex bring further depth to the goalkeeping position.”
Our new goalkeeper will wear the number 13 shirt and he fills the vacant goalkeeping position caused by Martinez’s departure.
