It has been Arsenal’s worst-kept secret for the last few months that they had secured the services of Lukas Podolski for next season, but the player himself is just as happy to be joining the mighty Gunners!
Podolski said: “I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal Football Club and to play in the Premier League. Arsenal is one of the top clubs in Europe with a huge history. There are many top quality players at Arsenal and the style of football which the team plays is fantastic. I’m proud to become an Arsenal player and am looking forward to playing my first match at Emirates Stadium and doing my best for all the Arsenal fans.
