Welcome to London! Arsenal finalised the £21million signing of Jakub Kiwior this morning, and the Polish defender is bound for North London with his glamorous wife Claudia Kowalczyk

Judging by the twerking-heavy content on her Instagram account, Claudia looks likely to buck the trend of Wives and Girlfriends (WAGS) being more low key in recent years.

The dancer has enjoyed an illustrious career – bringing home her own silverware – and regularly posts videos of herself twerking under the handle @claudia.redheaded_babe. 

Twerking – a cross between a ‘twitch and a jerk’ –  is thought to have originated in the bounce music scene in the US city of New Orleans in the late Eighties.

According to her social media bio, she’s currently host of the Poland Twerk Championships, and scooped the Queen of Twerking Competition in Germany in 2017, and was a semi-finalist in the European Twerk Champions in 2018. 

Clearly excited about joining the Premier League side’s WAGS – Claudia posted a photo of herself saying: ‘London, I’m ready’ and a loveheart emoji. 

She added: ‘Thank you for all for your messages. I can’t reply to everyone, but I really appreciate it.’

While it may not be as sunny as Liguria, where the couple lived while Kiwior plied his trade in Serie A, leafy Hertfordshire is likely to be their next postcode. 

Many of the team’s squad reside there in palatial mansions, including current star striker and England star Bukayo Saka, knowing its not too far to reach the Emirates stadium.
