Chamakh: Joining Arsenal dream come true

Marouane Chamakh says his move to Arsenal is a dream come true.

The former Bordeaux striker made his home debut in yesterday's 1-1 draw with AC Milan.

"Arsenal is a club which has always made me dream, it is the place I wanted to be and the shirt I wanted to wear more than any other," Chamakh told the official Arsenal magazine.

"It will not be easy to get in the team here because of all the great players we have, but I think I can add value to the team.

"I won't have any trouble to fit into the Arsenal style of play, but I can bring something more too with long balls towards me if we are struggling during a game because I am strong in the air.

"With my height and qualities in the air, playing in England was always the best choice for me.

"I know I still have a lot of hard work to do to perform well in the Premier League, but I am very motivated and hungry to do well."
