Thomas Eisfeld: Feels he has already learnt a lot at Arsenal
Arsenal teenager Thomas Eisfeld feels his game has improved significantly since arriving at Emirates Stadium in January.
The German midfielder joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline-day and has gone on to impress for the club's reserves side.
The 19-year-old also scored twice on Arsenal's pre-season tour to the Far East and is pleased with his progress.
"I've always scored a lot of goals and made a lot of assists," Eisfeld told the Official Arsenal Magazine.
"I think that is important in my position to be able to do that.
"My favourite position is the No 10 role, so attacking midfield. I don't mind the wings either. But I don't think playing as a central striker is really my position because I'm not the strongest physically.
"Since I've been at Arsenal I've learnt how to play the ball quicker and to pass and move with more effectiveness. I have become stronger too.
"Pre-season was really nice and gave me real a confidence boost. I was confident going into it because I know what I am capable of, but I certainly didn't expect to score two goals. I'm really happy with how it went."
