Arsenal have announced that they have completed the signing of Olivier Giroud from Montpellier for an undisclosed fee.

The Premier League club had long been linked with a move for the France international, with the transfer now only the subject of the formal processes after the 25-year-old completed a medical and agreed personal terms on Monday.

Giroud played a key role in Montpellier's Ligue 1 title-winning 2011-12 campaign, scoring 21 goals in 36 appearances, and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is over the moon with the striker's arrival at the Emirates Stadium on what is described as a long-term contract.

"We are delighted to have secured the signing of Olivier Giroud," Wenger told the club's official website. "He has a very good physical presence and is exceptional in the air, with a great work ethic.

"We are excited about Olivier joining us and he will add an additional dimension to our attacking options next season.
