“Julio Baptista will be a great addition to our squad,” Wenger told the club’s official website.

“He is a powerful young international and is a versatile footballer who can operate both in midfield and as a striker

“He has shown his potential over the past few seasons in Spain with both Real Madrid and Sevilla and we are looking forward to him joining us.
