Arsenal have signed Ivory Coast defender Emmanuel Eboue from Belgian club Beveren.

Eboue will join Arsenal during the January transfer window.

“He will certainly join us in January,” Wenger told reporters on Friday.

“He’s a multi-functional player. He normally plays centre back, but he can play right back or midfield. He has a chance to play.”

Eboue, 21, will link up with fellow Ivorian Kolo Toure, now a first-choice central defender for Arsenal.
