The 28 year old, who joined the Gunners from Newcastle United feels that there is plenty more success to come at Emirates Stadium in the coming years especially as the club looks to further reinforce after bringing in Alexis Sanchez as well as the Frenchman.
Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, he said:
I’m very happy to be at Arsenal, and to sign for this big club. I’m very excited to get going. Because Arsenal are one of the biggest clubs in the whole world. I am very proud to sign for Arsenal and to wear the colours.
I know that Arsenal can win titles every year. Winning the FA Cup last season was something magnificent but I hope that it is just the beginning and that there will be more to come next season.
Yes, of course. Everyone knows Arsène Wenger. Everyone knows he’s a great coach so of course, he had a part to play in me coming here.

There are some really great players in this team. We saw that last season and I think it will be even better this season. As I just said, I hope there is more silverware to come in the next few years.
I’ve come here because I really want to play Champions League football again, it’s one of the biggest competitions in the world. Everyone wants to play in it.
Arsenal certainly look a force to reckon with this season after a promising campaign where they led the league for majority of the term. Some strong additions as well as more time together as a squad, the Gunners can hope to build upon their recent FA Cup success beginning with securing Champions League football in their play-off next month.
The French defender is more than capable of filling the void left by one of the North London club’s most consistent performers. He is also confident enough to apply himself right away, ensuring the changeover is hopefully smooth. His attacking stats underline a busybody and it’s encouraging to see he averages at least one shot per match, as the Gunners insistence on playing fast-paced, counter-attacking football means he can sprint into useful positions on the overlap.
Sagna’s exit will be rendered nothing more than a slight hiccup when the campaign begins, as Wenger’s latest French addition possesses similar quality and greater potential to excel. The Gunners future is looking on the up after the FA Cup win and signings of Alexis Sanchez and Debuchy.
