New Roma goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says he didn't join the club to leave at the end of his loan spell next season.
The 25-year-old played more than 180 games for the Gunners but lost his place to David Ospina at the start of the year.
He is determined to secure regular first-team football in Rudi Garcia's team and to win trophies with his new team.
"I am here to win," the goalkeeper is quoted as saying by Calciomercato.it.
"I believe this team is strong enough to win trophies, I know some of the players and I hope to settle down quickly.
"[Arsenal manager Arsene] Wenger told me that this was going to be a great opportunity for me. I also want to meet [Francesco] Totti, a legend of the game.
"I saw pictures of the fans, they are very passionate, they gave me a very warm welcome and now it's my turn to show that I deserve to wear this jersey.
"I'm not here just to spend one season and then return to Arsenal. I want to win at Roma. Wenger told me that [Rudi] Gracia is an excellent coach and I'm looking forward to meeting him."
