Ngog joined the Swans from Bolton Wanderers earlier today, signing a contract that will keep him at the club until the end of the season for an undisclosed fee.
Laudrup is hopeful that the French striker can bring different qualities into his side and is expecting him to fit in quickly given his previous spells in the top flight with Liverpool and Bolton.
"If we are talking position-wise we have been low in numbers recently and we are still in three competitions with the possibility of more injuries going on," PA quotes Laudrup as saying.
"The other thing is to try and find abilities that you don't have. He's a different kind of forward, he has got that pace one-against-one that could be useful in games. What is very important when you look in the January window is that you look to find someone from this style of football.
"You can go outside and bring in foreigners with no experience of English football, but everyone needs time to adapt and we only have three-and-a-half months left in the league. So this is a player who has experience of this league from Liverpool and Bolton."
Swansea currently sit 15th in the Premier League table, just three points clear of the relegation zone.
