Getafe have signed former Schalke striker Ciprian Marica on a free transfer.
Marica, 27, was out of contract and moves to the Primera Division side despite interest from Arsenal, Italian sides Inter Milan and Lazio, as well as his former club Shakhtar Donetsk.
Marica’s representative, Ioan Becali, had said earlier this month that the Romania international was close to joining the Gunners but Arsene Wenger has since said he is happy with the options at his disposal.
The deal was confirmed on Getafe’s official website on Friday.
