The powerful 18-year-old has emerged as Wenger's second choice left-back this season, behind Gael Clichy, making seven appearances so far.
Traore has hailed Wenger's policy, and has put his continuous learning down to the blend of youth and experience in the Arsenal squad.
"I have improved more quickly at Arsenal than I would have done at France, where I would never train with professional players," he told L'Equipe.
"There is nothing better than Arsenal for a player of my age. Here, the youngsters and the stars all live together."
