Wigan, England – Wigan added to its attacking ranks on Wednesday with the signing of Levante striker Arouna Kone for an undisclosed fee.
Kone tallied 15 goals in 34 league matches last season for Levante, and he joins the Latics on a three-year contract.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a successful spell at PSV Eindhoven before moving on to Sevilla. He then spent one season on loan with German side Hannover before completing a move to Levante and bouncing back with a big season.
"He's a player that we've been chasing for a long long time," Wigan manager Roberto Martinez told the club's official website.
"We know Arouna really well, he's got tremendous experience in European football and we've really enjoyed watching his goal scoring talent.
"He's a strong payer with a clinical touch and someone who will bring us something different up front."
Kone has been capped 35 times by the Ivory Coast, scoring nine goals, and he becomes the fourth new arrival at the DW Stadium this summer, joining Fraser Fyvie, Ivan Ramis and Ryo Myaichi.
Wigan opens its new season at home against Chelsea on Sunday.
