Switzerland right-back and captain set to become Unai Emery's first recruit, joining on a free transfer from Juventus

Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The 34-year-old Switzerland right-back will join Arsenal when his deal with Juventus expires at the end of this month. 

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes, and he will wear the No 12 shirt for the Gunners.

“Stephan brings huge experience and leadership to our squad," head coach Unai Emery told the club's official website.

"He’s a player with great quality with a very positive and determined attitude."

Lichtsteiner made more than 250 appearances for Juventus, helping them win seven successive Serie A titles. 

He also captains Switzerland and is in their 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.

The defender is Arsenal's first signing since Emery was appointed.
