Former Arsenal coach, Arsène Wenger, has named Nwankwo Kanu as his best January signing for the Gunners.
Wenger picks the cult-hero Kanu who was signed from Inter Milan in 1999 for £4m over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Wenger reacted thus when asked:
“What a difficult question. Over 20 years… maybe Kanu. In the middle of the season, that had a big impact and was a huge player.”
Kanu became an important player in the second half of his first season and came off the bench in his first few games, netting goals against Derby, Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa and north London rivals Tottenham.
The striker scored 17 goals in his first full season, including a 15-minute hat-trick against Chelsea, and helped his side reach the UEFA Cup final.
Kanu was part of the Invincibles team from 2003-2004 and managed 43 Premier League goals in 195 games.
