Flamini returned to the Gunners on a free transfer in the summer window with Yaya Sanogo also arriving as a free agent, but it was the record-breaking signing of Mesut Ozil that captured the imagination at The Emirates.
"Our ambitions are clear, as the arrival of Mesut Ozil has proved; to fight for the title and compete in the Champions League," Flamini is quoted as saying in The Mirror.
"We want to win trophies. The club has waited for them for too long. We have the means to compete for the title, even if we are outsiders, not favourites, like in 2007-08. That is my motivation, I want to write another beautiful story with Arsenal.
"I will never forget the match against Tottenham Hotspur which marked my return. After having spent four fantastic years here, I played for five years at AC Milan, but I had the feeling that I had never left, that I had never turned the page. I have unfinished business here."
Flamini made his return in their 1-0 win over fierce local rivals Spurs on September 1.
