With Walcott still recovering from injury, this is indeed a much needed signing for the gunners. Hulk has all the required attributes like strength, dribbling and shooting skills to play well in any top club in the world. Even though the Brazilian beast missed most of the season due to injury, he came back stronger and bagged 7 goals in 9 league games.
It looks like Arsenal are in for a busy Summer with other big names like Loic Remy, Antoine Griezmann, Carlos Vela, Mari Mandzukic and Karim Benzema are also heavily linked the Gunners.
