Sanogo joins the Gunners on a free transfer after his contract with Auxerre expired on June 30, with the forward penning a “long-term” deal.

The 20-year-old will link up with his new club after the Under-20 World Cup, where he has starred with two goals in France’s three matches.

He netted 11 times in 24 games for Auxerre, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claiming the club had picked up an excellent prospect.

“Sanogo is a good young signing for us. He has shown that he has potential with his recent performances for Auxerre and also for the France Under-20 side,” Wenger said.

“We are looking forward to Yaya joining us and continuing his promising development.”
