While signing players like Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Cesc Fabregas proved to be masterstrokes by Wenger, it has not all been a red of roses for the manager in the transfer market, with more than a few questionable buys since he took over at the club in September 1996.
Oleg Luzhny, Igors Stepanovs and Andre Santos make our cut of Wenger's terrible buys, but who else makes the starting XI of Wenger's worst signings for the north London club?
