Arsenal's summer transfer window couldn't have got off to a more perfect start.
Following weeks of speculation, the Gunners finally unveiled Borussia Monchengladbach's Granit Xhaka as their first summer signing on Wednesday afternoon.
The announcement came five days after pictures emerged of the Swiss midfielder donning Arsenal's new home strip in a photo shoot.

£30 million is the reported fee paid to sign Xhaka, making him the third most expensive signing to arrive in the red half of north London.
His confirmed arrival could be just the beginning, though, with Arsene Wenger's side linked with a wide array of top talent. Here's how the Gunners could line up next season.
GOALKEEPER - PETR CECH
No surprises here following a debut season where Cech was superb and recorded 16 Premier League clean sheets, winning the Golden Glove in the process.
RIGHT-BACK - HECTOR BELLERIN
Another Arsenal player who enjoyed an excellent campaign at the Emirates Stadium, Bellerin has cemented his place as first-choice right-back and looks set to play there for years to come.
CENTRE-BACK - LAURENT KOSCIELNY
Reports suggest Koscielny could succeed Mikel Arteta as Arsenal captain this summer - and it's easy to see why.
Whilst far from vocal, the Frenchman inspires through his consistent and all-action displays at the heart of defence.
CENTRE-BACK - GABRIEL PAULISTA
The Brazilian showed glimpses of brilliance last term but let himself down on occasion with some awful defending. He has much to learn but seems cut from the same cloth as his partner in crime.
LEFT-BACK - NACHO MONREAL
Monreal became a source of frustration for fans following his 2013 arrival, but he's since improved considerably and become one of the Premier League's finest left-backs.
MIDFIELD - AARON RAMSEY
Ramsey's contributions nowadays often go underappreciated, perhaps because of just how good he was in the 2013/14 campaign.
The Wales international's energy and ability to both defend and push forward would perfectly compliment the more disciplined Xhaka. He remains Arsenal's best all-round midfielder.
MIDFIELD - GRANIT XHAKA
Arsenal's new boy is guaranteed a starting spot, adding steel and creativity in front of the back four.
Xhaka was renowned during his Monchengladbach days for his fiery temper - something the Gunners lack in the centre of the park.
ATTACKING MIDFIELD - MESUT OZIL
Nineteen assists in the Premier League last season tells you all you need to know about Ozil's importance. Cech recently hailed the German's passing and vision as "extraordinary" - there's no arguing with that.
RIGHT WING - RIYAD MAHREZ
Arsenal have frequently been linked with a £40 million move for the Leicester City star amidst their dire need for a new wide player.
Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain look set for summer departures, freeing up a space - and money - for the arrival of Mahrez, who has become one of Europe's hottest prospects.
LEFT WING - ALEXIS SANCHEZ
His record since signing in 2014 speaks for itself: 42 goals and 22 assists in all competitions. Sanchez has bailed Arsenal out on far too many occasions and is, quite frankly, indispensable.
STRIKER - ALVARO MORATA
At long last, it seems Wenger has accepted that he needs a new striker to have any hope of winning the Premier League.
Morata, who is reportedly interested in a move to north London, is far from prolific, but at 23-years-old, he represents a marked improvement on the likes of Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck.
