He looks slimer and weaker than Arteta.
Bad signing imo.
It may be the modern way but when a goalkeeper bigs himself up by talking about how good he is with his feet, it makes me sceptical, particularly a goalkeeper without any pedigree.
How good are you at saving / catching a ball? That's the bread and butter, distribution is the icing on top, particularly for a back up
Anyway, hope he has a successful career here and proves people like me wrong.
Welcome to Arsenal. I hope this article is completely mistaken:

We sign Iceland's #2. Iceland!
Alex must feel like he won the lottery.
Honestly I don’t want to be too harsh, but the only thing that makes sense to me is if he was bought as 3rd choice and they feel they can develop him and sell him for profit later.. His stats doesn’t make for pretty reading
Just watched the obligitory youtube compilation, as I have never heard of the guy. He looks like a flapper. A lot of his 'good' saves he palms the ball back out centrally.
Not sure I have seen a **** youtube career highlight compilation before. Pascal Cygan looked like Maldini on youtube.
He only made 13 appearances in all competitions for Dijon last season. He wasn't even first choice for them.
I think we wanted someone who was happy to play second fiddle to Leno. I just hope Leno doesn't get injured again, I don't think we can rely on this guy.
He looks worringly skinny and weak..
