Arsenal's Rob Holding eager to test himself in the Premier League

Rob Holding won Bolton's Player of the Year award last season.

Rob Holding believes he will be well suited to Arsenal's style of play and is looking forward to testing himself against the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and Gabriel for a place in the Gunners' team.

Holding, 20, has joined Arsenal on a long-term deal for a fee in the region of £2 million, and in an interview with the club's official website he admitted he hadn't even been to London before signing for the Premier League runners-up.

He said: "I've watched them on the TV mainly. I've never been down to London. They've always played nice football, they've got a reputation for playing nice football. That suits me and hopefully I can bring what I do."

When asked what attracted him to the club, he added: "It's definitely the style of football -- the way they pass it, those sharp one-twos around the box."

After playing regularly for Bolton last campaign it won't be easy for Holding to get in the starting XI at Arsenal but he is not put off by the prospect of having to prove himself all over again.

"There's massive competition here and it will only improve me," he said. "It will push me to new boundaries and hopefully I can prove my worth."
