Martin Olsson is a young left-sided player who signed for Blackburn Rovers as a 17-year-old at the beginning of 2006. He made his senior debut in a UEFA Cup tie against Finland?s My Pa-47 in August 2007, but it was not until the second half of the 2009-10 season that he was able to establish himself in the line-up at Ewood Park. In 2010-11 he missed time through injury before regaining his place in the side in the new year. A left back or left-sided midfield player, Martin is effective when pushing forward down the flank. He won his first full caps for Sweden in the summer of 2010.
Most neutral's will agree that Arsenal's pre-season has been an impressive one.
