Arsenal have completed the signing of goalkeeper Jens Lehmann from Borussia Dortmund.
Lehmann helped Dortmund win the 2002 Bundesliga title
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger hailed the 33-year-old Germany international as "a great signing" for the club.
Wenger has been searching for a replacement for David Seaman following his departure to Manchester City.
And, after being linked with a long list of keepers, he has opted for Lehmann because he is "used to playing under big pressure".
"He is a very experienced goalkeeper who has proved his quality playing in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League and also for his country," said Wenger.
"Jens will greatly improve the strength of our squad and I am very happy that we have signed a player of his ability."
Wenger revealed that Lehmann would join the Arsenal squad on their pre-season tour of Austria on Sunday.
The signing of Lehmann was confirmed after the Gunners' 2-0 friendly win over Austria Vienna on Friday, secured by first-half goals from Dennis Bergkamp and Francis Jeffers.
After completing his move, Lehmann said: "I am delighted to be joining Arsenal. They are one of Europe's great clubs and they have many fantastic players.
"Hopefully I will impress the club and its supporters and I'm also very much looking forward to playing in the English Premier League."
Lehmann, who won the German league title with Dortmund in 2002, was also a
member of the Germany World Cup squads in 1998 and 2002, in addition to their Euro 2000 squad.
He made a combined total of nearly 400 appearances for FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund.
