New Arsenal signing Olivier Giroud believes the Gunners are set to win silverware next season and claims this belief was an important factor in his decision to move to Emirates Stadium.


Arsene Wenger has been bolstering his attacking options and has already secured the signing of Germany international Lukas Podolski this summer.


There is still a lot of concern over whether captain Robin van Persie will sign a new contract to stay in north London, but Giroud is confident the team has what it takes to end the seven year wait for a trophy.


“There is a good generation of players here, a good team,” Giroud told Arsenal’s official website.


“They were not helped by injuries last season and there were a few changes, and for the stability of the group that makes a difference.

“But I think there is a good spirit here and that is another reason why I chose this club.


“I am confident in the potential of the group and I am convinced that in the future, hopefully next season, we can win something.”


The 6ft 3in striker was aware that the Premier League is not the easiest league to adapt to, but he insisted he has what it takes to become a success there.


Giroud even went so far as to claim the difficulty of England’s top flight is what made it so attractive to him.


“It is difficult in England because there are so many big teams, but that is what gives it its charm, that is what makes it beautiful,” he added.


“It is the hardest league and it won’t be easy to impose myself, but I am confident.”


Ligue 1's top scorer last years with 21 goals, Giroud’s transfer from last year’s French champions, Montpellier, will be completed on July 1 when the transfer window reopens.
