"I’m delighted to announce that I have permanently joined the Giallorossi," he wrote in the caption.

"Firstly, I would like to thankArsenal,its personnel and the millions ofGunners, all whom supported me over the past year and a half. A special thanks goes to Arsene Wenger for having brought me to the club and for his trust in me.

"Now the preparation begins with my new challenge and my second year adventure in Serie A.

"I love the city ofRoma, I love this club and I count the fans in my heart. I will give all of my effort in helping us achieve our goals!"
