CM- Amaury Bischoff
When Arsene Wenger – who confidently signed Squillaci and Andre Santos – refers to your signing as a ‘gamble’, you know you have a lot of work to do to prove yourself. Sadly, that was the situation that greeted Amaury Bischoff when he signed in 2008, and sadly, the gamble failed to pay off. He made just one appearance in the league, before leaving after one season. He now plays in the German Third Division.
CM- Junichi Inamoto
Despite proving with both Fulham and West Brom that he is not a bad player at Premier League level, the former Japan international’s time at Highbury was very disappointing as he failed to make a single appearance in the top flight.
CM- Andrey Arshavin
The Russian’s inclusion seems quite harsh given that the tricky midfielder provided some moments of brilliance during his time with Arsenal, not least his four goals that helped the Gunners draw 4-4 against Liverpool at Anfield in 2009. However, his time in England did tail off, and while his arrival – which was famously delayed by snow – bagged the majority of the headlines, his departure was met with little fanfare.
