Arsenal signing Lukas Podolski says he's joined the club to win silverware.

He is confident he can lead Arsene Wenger's side to their first taste of glory since their 2005 FA Cup win.

Podolski said: "It won’t be easy as the Premier League is quite well balanced, certainly across the top six teams who are all very strong. It will be difficult.

“But I have joined to win titles and trophies — that is my target. I will do my very best to be successful with Arsenal.

“They play fast in England, score lots of goals and there are tough battles.

“I enjoy this style of football, so from that point of view I think I will adapt fairly quickly. I’m a player who plays in a similar style.”
