The Spain international signed on the dotted line on a long-term contract with the Gunners on Tuesday.
"Technically he is very gifted, he can play wide in both positions and through the middle as well," Arteta told the club's official website.
"He is tricky and has two good feet. In fact I could not say whether he is right or left-footed. He will bring us good experience and something different. He will be a good addition to the team.
"I am convinced he will [make an impact]. The way that we play at Arsenal really suits his qualities and hopefully he will be very successful."
Cazorla is manager Arsene Wenger's third signing of the summer, following the captures of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.
