Jack Robinson has been confirmed as an Arsenal player after completing his £8m move from Wolves, with the defender signing a four year deal at the Emirates Stadium. The deal takes Arsenal’s summer spending to £40m.
The addition of the left-back to the Arsenal squad frees up Danny Wilson to act as cover for central positions in case of injury, and equally importantly, adds another home-grown player to the squad ahead of the Europa League campaign. Robinson is reported to be set to earn £36,500 p/w at Arsenal, with a 25% rise once he earns a senior England cap.
The 24-year is set to play in Arsenal’s friendly at home to Enfield Town on Sunday, and it’s believed that the club will now only spend further this summer should they sell first.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed that they have accepted a bid of £8m for left-back Jack Robinson from Arsenal, and that the 24-year old has already entered into contract talks at the Emirates Stadium.
Robinson came through the academy system at Liverpool, with loan spells at Leeds, West Ham, Blackpool, and Southampton before he joined Wolves in 2016 with a loan-to-buy option that was taken-up for £1.5m. He played 34 times for the club last season as they went on to finish 12th in the Premier League.
With 26 caps for England U21s, and a former vice-captain, Robinson isn’t shy about making a tackle. Twice in the last three seasons he has set club records (at Wolves and Saints) for the most bookings in a season – both for thirteen yellows and two reds.
