Gunners move for Juve defender Stephan Lichtsteiner

Arsenal have announced the signing of former Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner.

It has been claimed that the 34-year-old will agree a one-year deal to join the Gunners as he looks to bring some much-needed experience to the Arsenal defence ahead of next season.

Lichtsteiner, who captains Switzerland, will become manager Unai Emery's first signing since succeeding Arsene Wenger.

He has won seven Serie A titles, four Coppa Italias and three Italian Super Cups at Juventus after joining the club from Lazio in 2011.

Lichtsteiner will compete with Hector Bellerin for the starting right back spot in Emery's Gunners side. "Stephan will improve us on and off the pitch".

He said: "It's a great moment". It is a project to come back into the Champions League, it is hard not to see a club like Arsenal that is not playing in the Champions League if you see the players, the club, the stadium.

Now, Lichtsteiner himself has broken his silence on the reports linking him with Arsenal, but gave little away when quizzed about a possible move to the north London club. You never stop learning and this is very important. "I'm really positive that we will do great things".

Lichtsteiner is set to captain Switzerland at the World Cup in Russian Federation and said he has "no idea" whether the deal will go through before the tournament starts on June 14.
