Has there been or will there ever be a foreigner who leaves such a lasting legacy at a club?
Thierry Henry, forever remembered at the Emirates with a statue in his honour, changed the club’s fortunes on his arrival.
Despite an initial struggle to adapt to life in the Premier League, the Frenchman soon found his feet when Arsene Wenger decided to play him as a striker.
It was thanks to this that Henry exploded into life becoming Arsenal’s top scorer in almost every one of his seasons with the club.
During the early 2000s he was the most feared striker in world football, tearing up established Premier League defences with ease.
