Troisi, who is owned by Juventus, has been searching for a new club since his loan spell at Belgian club Zulte-Waregem ended in May.
The Asian Cup final hero was linked with A-League duo Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne City, but will make the move to the Middle East.
Al Ittihad are eight-time Saudi Arabian champions and two-time Asian champions.
Troisi will play alongside Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari at the club coached by Romanian Lazslo Boloni.
