Arsenal fans disappointed as Robbie Burton signs for Dinamo Zagreb

The youngster ends his long association with the Gunners to sign terms for the Croatian outfit.

Arsenal have this afternoon sold Robbie Burton to Dinamo Zagreb to end his association with the Gunners. The midfielder had captained Steve Bould’s under-23 outfit on several occasions during 2019/20.

Burton was on the bench as Arsenal beat Nottingham Forest 5-0 in the Carabao Cup earlier this season but leaves having failed to play for the first-team.

The move was confirmed on the club’s official website and Croatian outlet Sportske claim he could cost the European outfit £800,000.

It’s fair to say that reaction to Burton’s departure has been mixed among the Arsenal faithful. Some are sad to see him go, whilst others believe the decision has been taken at the right time to allow him a new challenge.

With a plethora of midfielders at Mikel Arteta’s disposal, it seemed unlikely that he was going to break through any time soon.

The Spaniard has spoken of his desire to add ball-playing midfielders in the summer and selling Burton seems to make sense.

His departure has caused some debate among the Gunners faithful and many have taken to Twitter to discuss Burton.

Here is a selection of tweets from Arsenal supporters as the midfielder heads to Croatia for a fresh start.
