Retro Deal of the Day

Seventeen years ago today, Arsenal signed an enormous Nigerian striker from Inter Milan and Nwankwo Kanu went on to become one of the Premier League’s most recognisable footballers.

Kanu played in England’s top flight with the Gunners, West Brom and Portsmouth before hanging up his boots in 2012 after almost 20 years in the professional game.

He was the Gunners’ first African signing and was heavily influential in seeing English football, and particularly Arsenal, become so popular in his home continent.

ARSENAL Kanu/Wenger

One of Africa’s most decorated players, he won the African Footballer of the Year award twice (1996 and 1999).

Kanu burst on to the scene when he led Nigeria to an Under-17 World Cup success in Japan in 1993 alongside the likes of Celestine Babayaro.

The 6ft 5in striker was soon picked up by Louis van Gaal’s Ajax and he came on as a substitute for that star-studded side when they won the Champions League in 1996.

A €4m move to Inter Milan eventuated later that year before Arsenal snapped him up for £4.5m (€6.3m) in January 1999.

His beaming smile, audacious skills and eye for goal made him a fan favourite at Highbury, where he picked up two league titles and a brace of FA Cups.

He added a third FA Cup to his bulging trophy cabinet with Portsmouth (2008); a medal with plenty of company including an Olympic gold with Nigeria (1996), African Cup of Nations (1994), three Eredivisie titles, a Europa League, a Club World Cup and European Super Cup.

A man with no shortage of highlights, this video is worth a watch for the song alone.
