Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has named Nwankwo Kanu as his best mid-season signing through-out his twenty-two-year spell with the Gunners.
The Frenchman brought the to England in the middle of the nineteen ninety eight/ninety nine season and the lanky forward repaid his boss’ confidence in him with an impressive debut campaign.
Wenger, who rates Kanu a better January signing ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, brought former Nigeria international to North London from Inter Milan mid-season of the nineteen ninety eight/ninety nine campaign with four point five million pound.
The Frenchman highlighted many of Kanu’s significant impacts, even as a substitute, in his first few outings for the Gunners with crucial goals against Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.
But Kanu’s most memorable was his fifteen-minute hat-trick, as a substitute, against Chelsea in October Nineteen ninety nine, which helped Arsenal turn around a two-nil deficit to claim a famous three-two win at Stamford Bridge.
