On this day in 1999, Arsenal signed Thierry Henry in a transfer which saw the attacker develop from a winger to a centre-forward.
Henry was part of the France squad which won the World Cup in 1998, but he arrived at Highbury as left winger who had struggled to make an impact in six disappointing months in Serie A with Juventus.
Arsene Wenger, however, saw enough potential in the forward to convince Arsenal to break their transfer record, and Henry went on not only to became the Gunners’ top scorer of all time, but also his country’s.
