Veteran defender Naldo was the first to join from German club Schalke 04, and on Thursday Monaco announced the signing of France under-21 left-back Fode Ballo-Toure from Lille for 11 million euros plus bonuses.

During his time with Arsenal, Fabregas won one FA Cup.

'Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting, ' Henry said.

The 31-year-old had been out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season and, with his contract expiring in June, has departed for the French top flight on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Fabregas will be required to make an immediate impact for Henry's men, who now languish second from bottom of the Ligue 1 table and face the threat of relegation.

However, his deal to the Ligue 1 side will see him re-unite with his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry, who is in charge of the club.
