Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang

The forward has enhanced his reputation as one of Europe’s premier forwards since making the move to the Premier League from German football, scoring prolifically for the north London side despite a period of much frustration and mediocrity. Lightning quick and a cool finisher under pressure, Aubameyang’s goal tally has failed to dip regardless of whether he is deployed centrally or from the left.


Robin van Persie

Arsene Wenger had spotted something in the temperamental young winger and secured a deal to sign Van Persie from Feyenoord shortly after Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ campaign, believing the talented 21-year-old could thrive centrally. He scored an incredible 37 goals in all competitions during a sensational 2011/12 campaign, winning the Premier League’s Golden Boot award and being named as both the PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year. Van Persie combined incredible awareness and intelligence with sublime technique, his left foot a potent weapon.


Ian Wright

Wright was a wonderfully natural finisher, rising from non-league football to star for Crystal Palace, scoring prolifically for the Eagles to earn a club-record move to Arsenal in the early nineties. During his time, Arsenal became the first side in history to win an FA Cup and League Cup double. Ian thrived amid confrontation and revelled in scoring goals, netting 185 goals in all competitions eclipsing Cliff Bastin’s record for the club.


Dennis Bergkamp

The former Netherlands international arrived as a marquee addition into the Premier League during the mid-nineties, Bergkamp amongst a host of imports. Arsene Wenger’s arrival as manager unlocked the very best of Bergkamp’s genius, the Dutchman playing a starring role as the Gunners won a domestic double under the Frenchman in 1997/98. Bergkamp scored 120 goals in all competitions for the club and was often the heartbeat of the side’s best displays.


Thierry Henry

Henry’s eight-year spell in north London saw the star reign as the finest forward in English football, winning a record four Premier League Golden Boots and eclipsing Wright as the greatest goal scorer in Arsenal’s history. He helped the side to a domestic double before starring during the club’s ‘Invincibles’ campaign. Thierry Henry would often drift to the left-flank and was equally as adept at creating chances for his teammates, redefining the role of a striker and displaying a style of play not witnessed previously on these shores. He is one of just two players to have scored 20+ league goals in five consecutive campaigns.
