Ian Wright

A latecomer to the professional game, Wright quickly made up for lost time. After his move from Crystal Palace, the striker was Arsenal’s leading scorer in the club’s first five Premier League seasons.

A scorer of spectacular goals, Wright also had the knack of being in the right place at the right time and in helping Arsenal to the 1997/98 title, he beat Cliff Bastin's club record of 178 goals in all competitions.
