Stephan Lichtsteiner has 98 caps for Switzerland

What is it about Arsenal that attracted you, that made you want to move to London, to Arsenal and the Premier League?

The right-back, 34, spent seven years at Juventus, making 257 appearances and winning Serie A seven times in a row.

Since Switzerland have qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, the Gunners faithful can see Lichsteiner in action when the Swiss open their campaign against Brazil on June 17.

Lichtsteiner stated on his social media account: "Happy and honoured to be a Gunner!"

It's great to see that the club has confirmed this deal.

The 34-year-old's vast experience may come in handy in the UEFA Europa League as Arsenal are likely to employ a second-string side in the continental competition.

The Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, now has a new teammate at Arsenal as his club on Tuesday announced Swiss defender, Stephan Lichtsteiner, as their first summer signing.

But the visitors shocked Spurs - and delighted Arsenal fans everywhere - by equalising 180 seconds after the Gunners new man came onto the pitch.

"A story full of unforgettable moments that I will keep in my heart forever".

New Arsenal signing Stephan Lichtensteiner is convinced of success with Unai Emery. "He's a player with great quality with a very positive and determined attitude", said Emery.

Emery told the club's official website: "Stephan brings huge experience and leadership to our squad. The big objective is to come back on the highest level".

Having started his career at Grasshopper Zurich, Lichtsteiner moved to Lille in 2005.

The 31-year-old was a key figure in the defensive setup of the Old Lady last season and helped them in securing their fourth successive domestic double - the Coppa Italia and Scudetto.
