Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard believes that Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko’s winning mentality will be of benefit to the Gunners in the new season.
Arsenal bought the duo earlier this summer for a combined £80m after winning 10 trophies between them at the Etihad Stadium, including four Premier League titles.
Jesus and Zinchenko made their Arsenal debuts in Friday’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and impressed fans with their technical qualities.
The new Arsenal captain Odegaard believes it will be their mentality that will give the Gunners an extra edge.
“Gabi and Alex, coming from Man City, are used to winning trophies and playing for the best teams in the world for a few years.
“They bring that experience and they know what it takes to win in this country,” he said.
“I think it’s important, it’s always an area to improve for everyone, you can always be better in that way.
“As I said they have that experience and hopefully they can share with us what it takes to win in this country.
“That’s where we want to be as a team, to fight for trophies, titles, be at the top. That’s where the club should be so that’s where we want to get to.
“I think that’s a good thing for us to get players with that experience as well. Of course, the quality they have as well is top, so they have been good.”
Arsenal has come into the new season with high expectations after narrowly missing out on a return to the Champions League last campaign.
The Gunners will compete in the Europa League this year, while they are also looking to win a second piece of major silverware under Mikel Arteta.
