It goes without any doubt that Arsenal has been struggling a bit after Wenger parted ways with the club. Unai Emery is doing a good job, but there is still a lot more that needs to be done. You can say that this period was kind of anticipated because no club is able to just continue when a certain manager decides to leave after he has been on the seat for many years.
All we can say is that we can only hope Unai Emery will find the right track and help Arsenal climb back to the top. With that spirit in mind, we decided to take a look at some of the best players that Arsenal managed to sign over the years. But, before we unveil the list, let’s check out which teams are the favourites and how good are Arsenal’s chances of winning a trophy.

So, how good does Arsenal rank between these teams? We’ve seen that City and Liverpool are the obvious favourites for the Premier League. Nevertheless, Arsenal is still in the race with odds coming at 100/1. The odds of Arsenal winning the EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) are 12/1. It is interesting to mention that Aubameyang’s odds of being the top scorer this season are 6/1.
Now that we’ve taken a look at the odds, let’s head over to some of the legendary players that Arsenal signed.
Bergkamp is one of Arsenal’s biggest legends. Arsenal signed the attacker in 1995 from Inter. He stayed in the club for 10 years, had some legendary performances, and was a part of the team that won the Golden Trophy. He decided to retire in 2006.
Fabregas started his career in the Barcelona youth system. Arsenal discovered his talent and managed to purchase the player for just £2.9 million in 2003. He was a part of the team in the next 8 years and had a crucial role. In 2011, Fabregas decided to return to Barcelona.
The legendary striker that is loved by every football fan. Recently, Thierry Henry was named as the best overseas player of the Premier League. He joined Arsenal in 1999, after spending just 6 months in Juventus. Every moment after the signing is history. He is regarded as a legend of the game and Arsenal’s hero. Henry left Arsenal in 2007 and retired in 2015.
Aubameyang is the player that Arsenal definitely needed in this period. He won the Golden Boot last season, as the PL’s top scorer and he is not showing any signs of slowing down. He is often referred to as the new Thierry Henry and is set to become of Arsenal’s biggest legends.
