Giroud will 'savour' Arsenal chance

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is determined to make his mark with the Gunners after completing his switch from Montpellier for a fee believed to be £13 million.

• Giroud signs for Gunners

Giroud, 25, will officially move to North London on July 1 and has signed a "long-term contract" with the club, though the official fee and length of the deal is undisclosed.

The France international, who has been on international duty with Les Bleus at Euro 2012, helped fire Montpellier to the Ligue 1 title last season with 21 goals in 36 games.

And Giroud is determined to have a similar impact at Arsenal, who have not won a major trophy for seven years.

"There is a good spirit here, and that is another reason why I chose this club,'' Giroud told Arsenal Player. "I am confident in the potential of the group and I am convinced that in the future, hopefully next season, we can win something.

"It is difficult in England because there are so many big teams, but that is what gives it its charm, what makes it beautiful. It is the hardest league and it won't be easy to impose myself, but I am confident.

"I have the weapons to do well here. I will need some time to adapt of course, but I am not worried about that. I think I will adapt well. I am a player who likes to play, who likes to participate in the game. That is why I think the way Arsenal play will suit me.

"I like scoring goals and Arsenal create a lot of chances, so if I do well, then we will do well. Of course, there are big strikers here, it is a big club and there will be a lot of competition for places, but it is up to me to win my place.''

Giroud pointed to the reputation of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as a major factor in his decision to move to Emirates Stadium, and he believes he will become a better player under the Frenchman.

"The manager has always been about developing and I hope he can continue to do that with me too,'' Giroud said. "I am happy with my choice, and I think that he brings a lot to the French players that are in the team.''

"I can see what happened to me until now and I hope to continue to progress and show that I can impose myself at the top level. It has been great, right now I want to live it to the full, and I will savour this chance.''

Wenger feels Giroud will bring another "dimension'' to his squad, which has already been bolstered by the arrival of Germany forward Lukas Podolski.

"Olivier has a very good physical presence and is exceptional in the air, with a great work ethic,'' Wenger said. "We are excited about Olivier joining us and he will add an additional dimension to our attacking options next season.

"He has proved that he is capable of performing at the top level with club and country, and we saw what a big influence he was in Montpellier's championship-winning side last season.''
