"I've achieved this dream now and I am so happy. It's one of the most beautiful days of my life. I'm very happy to have the chance to work with Arsene Wenger.
"I came here because I believe that he can improve my game and help me reach another level, but the most important thing for me is that I bring a lot to the team for whom I'm playing."
