Arsène Wenger: top 10 Arsenal signings

1. Thierry Henry. Arrived at Highbury from Juventus for £10.9 million in August 1999. Brought in as a replacement for Nicolas Anelka, Wenger transformed the tall Frenchman from a meandering winger into one of the Premier League's most feared forwards.
2. Patrick Vieira. Wenger urged Arsenal to purchase the Frenchman from AC Milan before his own arrival at Highbury. At £3.8 million, his transfer fee was a bargain.
10. Sol Campbell. Brought in on a free transfer under the Bosman ruling from arch-rivals Tottenham in 2001 to fill the defensive vacuum left by Tony Adams, the centre-back formed the bedrock of Arsenal's defence and won two Premier League winners' medals and three FA Cups.
