New Arsenal signing Thomas Eisfeld cannot wait to play alongside his idol Tomas Rosicky.
Rosicky joined Arsenal in 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and, after making the same move, Eisfeld is looking to follow in the footsteps of his hero.
The 19-year-old grew up watching the Czech international playing for the first team whilst he was in the youth ranks at Dortmund.
Eisfeld told Arsenal's official website: "My hero was Tomas Rosicky. I have a shot of him in my room and it's fantastic to play with him.
"In my opinion, he's a great player and I focus on his game. But I play a little bit differently. I think I can read the game very well and my technique is quite good."
The young German also trained alongside Arsenal legend Thierry Henry on Tuesday and added: "I feel proud because to train with players like Thierry Henry is a dream of each player. It's like a dream come true for me."
Despite having never played for the Dortmund first team, Eisfeld said he had no worries about moving to Arsenal, given Arsene Wenger's record of working with youngsters at the club.
"The trainer is great for young players," he said.
"Mr Wenger said to me that I will get the chance to train with the first team and then it's up to me if I play or I don't play."
