The forward will wear the number 12 shirt at Arsenal and brings a wealth of experience to Mikel Arteta’s squad.
“I believe he’s a player that can really make a difference for us,” Arteta said. “We have been monitoring him for the past few months, we had a clear intention to strengthen in the attacking midfielder and the winger positions [and] he is a player that gives us a lot of versatility, he can play in three or four different positions.
“He has the experience of everything in the football world but to still have the ambition to come here and contribute to bring the club where it belongs.
“I’ve been really impressed with all the talks I have had with him and how much he wanted to come.”
