Giroud has 'weapons' to bring success to Arsenal
Arsenal new boy Oliver Giroud feels the Gunners can win something next season, stating he has the "weapons" to help deliver silverware.
The Barclays Premier League club have confirmed Giroud, part of France's Euro 2012 squad which was knocked out by Spain in the quarter-finals, had penned a "long-term contract" after joining for an undisclosed fee from Montpellier, which is believed to be £13million. The 25-year-old netted 21 goals in 36 league appearances as Montpellier claimed their first Ligue 1 title last season, and will now aim to make an impact as the Gunners look to deliver a first trophy since 2005 and progress again in Europe. "There is a good spirit here, and that is another reason why I chose this club," said Giroud, whose deal with Arsenal will officially commence on July 1. "I am confident in the potential of the group and I am convinced that in the future, hopefully next season, we can win something. "It is difficult in England because there are so many big teams, but that is what gives it its charm, what makes it beautiful. It is the hardest league and it won't be easy to impose myself, but I am confident," he added on Arsenal Player.
