Arsenal today completed the signing of long-term target Marouane Chamakh as Arsene Wenger began what could be a busy summer of transfer activity for the club.

The 26-year-old joins on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Bordeaux, and manager Wenger backed him to be "a great addition" to the Arsenal squad.

Chamakh has made no secret of his ambition to move to the Barclays Premier League and said: "This is a dream come true and a great joy to be joining Arsenal. My goal was always to play in the Premier League and Arsenal was the choice of my heart."
