Kallstrom arrives at the Emirates from Russian side Spartak Moscow, with the Gunners moving swiftly to bring in cover for the injured Aaron Ramsey.

Kallstrom spoke to the Official Arsenal Website after signing, and said:

“Arsenal is an amazing club with a lot of great players and a coach who has done really well here for a long time. I am so pleased to come here to learn as much as possible. I’m here to do my best for Arsenal and to help out the team, so we can achieve good results for the last part of the season.”

Welsh international Ramsey is out for at least six weeks through injury, Arsene Wenger confirmed today, and Kallstrom is seen as able cover for the 23-year-old.
