During Arsène Wenger’s reign at the north London club, Arsenal adopted a few defining characteristics.
They tried to play attractive football, consistently failed to make what seem like obvious defensive signings and, finally, always looked to bring young players into the first team.
Wenger had great success moulding talented prospects into world-class footballers, with some of the notable examples being Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry and Cesc Fàbregas.
Even towards the end of his tenure, when he was under severe pressure from some of his own support, he still looked to the long-term and gave chances to promising youngsters.

However, there are plenty of examples over the years where a player that seemed destined for the top never managed to hit the heights the Gunners expected them to.
With that in mind, here are 10 former Arsenal players that didn’t quite make the grade at the Emirates Stadium.
Fran Merida

Arsenal had great success with Fàbregas, and they hoped to repeat the trick when they brought 17-year-old Fran Merida over from Barcelona in 2007. Wenger described him as an “absolutely amazing player” after completing the deal and, like Fàbregas, he was a technically-gifted, creative central midfielder. However, he was unable to make the breakthrough to become a regular first-team player, joining Atlètico Madrid on a free transfer in 2010. The former Spain Under-21 international was only on the fringes at Atlètico, and had spells at Braga, Hercules, Atlético Paranaense and Huesca. He’s now at Segunda División side Osasuna.
Jérémie Aliadière

Jérémie Aliadière was a product of the famous Clairefontaine academy, and one of his former coaches ranked him alongside Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka (via BBC Sport) as the most promising French strikers to come through in a decade.
He joined Arsenal ahead of rival interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs at the age of 16, and made a very encouraging start, equalling Michael Owen’s record of nine goals on the Gunners’ way to lifting the FA Youth Cup in 2001.
It never really worked out for him at first-team level, though, even if he did win a league medal after making 10 appearances during the club’s historic unbeaten campaign in 2003/04.
He joined Middlesbrough in 2007, before a fairly successful spell with Lorient in his homeland, and had a spell with Umm Salal in Qatar before another brief stint at Lorient. He’s currently unattached.
Quincy Owusu-Abeyie

Quincy Owusu-Abeyie was released by Ajax as a 16-year-old because of problems with his attitude, but he was snapped up by Arsenal and scored 17 goals in 20 appearances at youth level in his first season in England.
