Wenger’s Top Signings

#8 Robin van Persie

Signed from Feyenoord for £3m in 2004, injuries prevented van Persie from fulfilling his undoubted potential in his few years at the club, although he did win the FA Cup in his first season. When he finally managed a sustained run in the team, though, the Dutchman showed his true form. He was named captain in the summer of 2011, and his 36 goals almost single-handedly secured Champions League qualification the following season. In total, he scored 132 goals for the club before joining Manchester United in August 2012.
