Queen’s Park Rangers have sealed their third signing since the takeover from Tony Fernandes as Armand Traore has signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee for the club.
The French left-back signs from Arsenal, where he made 32 appearances in 5 years at the club. He joined the Gunners from Monaco as a youth player but has found it hard to cement a place in the team.
Traroe made his competitive debut at the age of 17, against West Bromwich Albion in the Carling Cup. He then went on to play for Arsenal in all of the major competition.
Since his arrival at the Emirates, Traore has enjoyed season-long loans with Portsmouth in the 2008/09 season and most recently with Juventus in the 2010/11 campaign where he featured regularly for the Italians.
Traore revealed that manager Neil Warnock played a big part in convincing him to move to Loftus Road.
“When I talked to Neil Warnock he was very passionate about what I could bring to the club,” Traore told the club’s official website.
“He was very motivated about playing me week in, week out, and that’s what I need at this stage of my career.
