Lukas Podolski officially becomes an Arsenal player today.

The German striker has been at Emirates Stadium to visit his new Club. His first task was putting pen to paper on the contract which formally completed his move from Cologne.

The 27-year-old was then taken on a tour of Highbury House to meet Club staff. After that, Lukas and his family walked across Ken Friar Bridge to Emirates Stadium itself. The Euro 2012 star took in the dressing room and walked out on the pitch itself before picking up some souvenirs in the Armoury.

Lukas will be back at the Club later this month to begin training ahead of the 2012/13 campaign.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes him the best of luck for the upcoming season.
