Top 10 transfer deals that ‘continue to baffle’ Arsenal fans
Arsene Wenger is a man who prides himself on being able to pick out a bargain in the transfer window. Although some have criticised his reluctance to spend big, and prefer instead to find a cheaper alternative, there is no doubt that over the years he’s made some incredibly astute investments; Robin van Persie‘s £2.75million move from Feyenoord and Thierry Henry’s £11million transfer deal come to mind.
But at the same time, some deals have quite frankly not worked out, and have often produced some rather hilarious consequences. Unless you’re an Arsenal supporter however, in which case looking back through the club’s recent history and picking out some of the more dismal signings is a rather depressing experience.
Either way, our top ten list of atrocious Arsenal signings can be enjoyed by all. Some were a poor piece of business, many were very bad footballers and a few are a mix of the two, but all of them are completely baffling.
