Ivory Coast international Kolo Toure.
The 20-year-old utility player has impressed boss Arsene Wenger in two reserve fixtures against West Ham, the first in December and the second on Tuesday.
Toure, who joins the Gunners from Asec Mimosas for an undisclosed fee, has been a permanent fixture in the Ivory Coast side since 2000 and recently featured in the 2002 African Nations Cup.
Wenger said: "Kolo is very versatile and can play in the centre of the park and at right-back. We think he has the basic potential to become a very good player.
"He won't feature in the first-team squad immediately because he'll need at least three to four months' work. But you never know - he could feature before the end of the season."
