I think its hard to make judgements here based on price as costs are not adjusted for inflation. Was Bergkamp fee perhaps far higher when adjusted for inflation?

Yeah its hard to compare. Wasn't Bergkamp one of the top5 highest fees in Europe in the mid 90s?

I think that might be the case. I also think some of the fees might be wrong, its hard to know

Wow we've spent a lot of money on players who turned out to be flops...

I actually thought nobody was going to mention that.

Going thru the list, the following is my flop list. I listed those who are no longer with Arsenal though a few who are still with Arsenal might qualify as a flop after they leave (excluding loans) Arsenal. I define a flop as a player who did not live up to his potential and transfer fee or who is mostly injured.

1) Mkhitaryan
2) Welbeck
3) Perez
4) Jeffers
5) Debuchy
6) Paulista
7) Gervinho
8) Walcott
9) Wright
