Forget Arshavin, the stink from these five Wenger deals still hasn't left Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has signed some fantastic players for Arsenal in his 21 years at the club.

He was hailed as a genius at Highbury when he signed Thierry Henry for around £15million from Juventus in 199.

Henry was struggling in Italy and Wenger turned him into one of the world’s best players.

227 goals in 371 appearances put him right at the top of the list of Wenger buys, but we’re not here to talk about his successes.

Fans will remember Andrey Arshavin who Wenger signed from Zenit in 2009 for £15million.

His career at Arsenal fizzled out but Arshavin is nowhere near the top of Wenger’s biggest stinkers.
