Olivier Giroud looks forward to Champions League action with Chelsea — Premier League

Even for English players, when they come into the Premier League it's always a little bit tough.

"He was the next best thing, came with a big transfer fee".

Arsenal said the 2015 African Footballer of the Year had joined on "a long-term contract".

With AP Photos.Arsenal paid a club-record fee of 63.75 million euros ($80 million) to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund on the final day of the January transfer window.

"Thanks to the whole BVB family, the fans, the club, the staff and of course my team-mates!"

- David Luiz was thought to be a potential inclusion in the Giroud deal, but ended up remaining at Stamford Bridge.

"And with a World Cup place to play for with the French national team, he clearly would prefer to be playing than being left on the bench."

Giorud has only scored seven goals in 26 appearances for Arsenal this season, but only started one Premier League game so far.

Arsenal have signed Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for a club record £56m.

Guardiola has now spent more than £200 million on reinforcing his defence, bringing in Laporte alongside Benjamin Mendy (£52m), John Stones (£47.5m) and Kyle Walker (£45m).

"The Champions League is massive for a football player", said Giroud.

Arsenal lost 3-1 at Swansea on Tuesday despite leading 1-0, with midfielder Granit Xhaka accused of switching off defensively on the equaliser and goalkeeper Petr Cech then gifting Swansea their second goal with a missed clearance.

"We're focused on our upcoming challenges", he said. I have to check a couple of situations.

Chelsea make the short trip across London to take on Watford in the Premier League on Monday night. The club had already secured the signing of Croatian forward Marko Pjaca from Juventus.

Aubameyang said he hopes to help sixth-placed Arsenal return to the top "as soon as possible". While Michy Batshuayi scored two goals, I did not sense enough hunger in his play.

Three years earlier Lewandowski joined Dortmund as an understudy to then Dortmund top scorer Lucas Barrios.
