Giroud is a lifelong fan of the Premier League and admits he cannot wait to test himself and try to "create history" with Arsenal.
"Also the environment appeals to me - the fans, the full stadiums, the different mentality here. So I'm happy to be able to discover this league.
"It's about the fervour around football here. The [supporters] come as a family, they're very passionate, it's in their blood. They live football, eat football and sleep football. It's different to France.
"There is a nice sporting challenge as well at Arsenal, and I will play to create history and enjoy myself and give pleasure to the fans. I think that the Premier League corresponds well with me."
