Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna is impressed with the speed at which the club's newest signings have bedded in.
The likes of Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos, whose signings at Arsenal were completed on transfer deadline day, had little time to adapt to their new surroundings before featuring in the squad that faced Swansea City in early September.
Furthermore, five other summer signings have had to fit in quickly at the Emirates Stadium, and Sagna, currently out with a broken leg, is impressed with their early work.
"They are all doing well. Everybody in the team likes them already and this is always a compliment," he said.
"Of course, we need to get to know each other a bit more. But with time we will get better and better."
Having spent four years at the club since his move from Auxerre in 2007, Sagna is one of the more experienced members of Arsene Wenger's squad, but the Frenchman insists he isn't a role model for the new faces at the club.
"We try to talk and share together all the time," he added.
"But I am not a model at all. I will try to be to the young players at the end of my career. But I just want to give my best for the team."
