After the appointment of former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery as the Gunners head-coach, the Emirates outfit appear to be heading in a slightly different direction in handling of transfer business were being handled during the long reign of Arsene Wenger.

This has seen the club secure the signing of Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner, a player who is expected to bring more experience to the Gunners squad and also compete with the under-performing Hector Bellerin for a starting role at the right-back.

And when asked about what attracted him to Arsenal, the 34-year-old, who has been pocketing £48,000-a-week wages in Italy, revealed that Emery’s ‘project’ proved to be appealing.

The former Serie A star said:

"There is a project. There is a project to come back into the Champions League."

"If you see the players, if you see the club, the stadium… it’s the project, the big opportunity to get back to the highest level."
