Robin van Persie became the latest addition to Arsene Wenger's galaxy of stars and promptly pledged to give his all as Arsenal bid for glory at home
and abroad next season.
Feyenoord frontman van Persie agreed to join the new Barclaycard Premiership champions on Wednesday morning as the Gunners began preparations for the
defence of their title just 72 hours after they won it.
The talented 20-year-old moved for an undisclosed fee on a "long-term contract" - although the player, who can operate as a striker or winger, is not
expected to have cost more than 3million and Feyenoord say he signed a four-year deal.
And Dutch Under-21 international van Persie, who will now undergo a medical at Highbury and link up with his new team-mates in the summer, immediately
set his sights on helping the Londoners achieve their two-pronged target for next term.
Wenger has earmarked back-to-back titles - allied to Champions League success - as the goal for his team which lifted the league crown at White Hart
Lane on Sunday.
Van Persie said: "I'm delighted to be joining a great club like Arsenal. This is a dream come true for me.
