Arsenal’s latest signing, Jakub Kiwior, has revealed why he joined the Gunners this January transfer window.
Arsenal on Monday confirmed the signing of Kiwior from Italian club Spezia.
Kiwior became Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s second January signing.
The Poland international moved to Emirates Stadium in a deal worth £ 20 million.
The 22-year-old, who has nine caps for Poland, signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the North London club, with the option of a further year.
Speaking to the club media following his move to Arsenal, Kiwior explained the reasons behind his switch to the Premier League leaders, revealing that their style of football was a big factor.
“When I saw my name on an Arsenal shirt for the first time, I just laughed!” Kiwior said.
“I was so happy to see my name on the shirt of such a huge club.
“For me, it is an incredibly happy moment and the pinnacle to play for such a big club."
“I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League. I knew it would not be easy, and if I got the chance, I knew I would have to make the most of it because it was one of my biggest dreams. For me, it is the best league. "I am thrilled to be here.”
“It is huge for me that Arsenal were interested and that I am able to be here."
“I love passing the ball." I like teams that move the ball and try to create chances that way. So, I am happy that I have come to a team like that.
