"Gabriel will wear the number 9 shirt and will join up with the Gunners squad for pre-season training soon.

"Everyone at Arsenal welcomes Gabriel to the club."

Manager Mikel Arteta added: "I'm very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature. I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.

"This is a position that's been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I'm really happy."

The Brazilian, who is understood to have joined Arteta's side on a five-year deal, also posted a short farewell video on his social media, as can be seen below.
