Breaking: Arsenal sign Lichtsteiner
Arsenal has confirmed the signing of right-back Stephan Lichsteiner on a free transfer.
The Swiss international joins the Gunners as a free agent from the Serie A club, where he won the title in each of his seven seasons. With his contract expiring, Arsenal has now confirmed on their official site, that the Swiss international will become Unai Emery’s first signing since being appointed as boss last month.
He will wear the No.12 shirt at the Emirates, as he now looks to provide stiff competition for Hector Bellerin in the right-back slot.
He started his senior career in 2001 with Swiss club Grasshopper Zurich, where he won the league title in 2003. He played in France with Lille for three years before moving to Lazio in Italy in 2008, where he won the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana before moving to Juventus in 2011.
