Cameroon international striker Tchami (pictured) had a trial at Bolton over the summer, but Trotters manager Sam Allardydce decided not to offer the 29-year-old a deal.
Tchami has signed a two-year contract, with The Tangerines giving a nominal fee to UAE club Al Wasl.
United boss Alex Smith received a glowing report on the former Boca Junios and Hertha Berlin, and gave him a trial before making the move permanent.
He have his opinion of the Cameroon striker, saying:"It has been a long time coming. But hopefully time well spent for Dundee United.
"From what I've seen on video and in training we could have something a bit special."
Meanwhile, Wright will see it as a chance to kick-start his career after he spent a nightmare season at Bradford, where he failed to start a single game.
The defender revealed his relief, saying: "My career has been a bit stop-start for the past couple of years but hopefully that will change now."
