While Arsene Wenger brought several French players to Arsenal during his time at the club, he also put a lot of faith in homegrown talent.
Back in December 2012, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Carl Jenkinson all signed new long-term contracts at the club.
“I believe when you have a core of British players, it’s always easier to keep them together,” Wenger said at the time.
“We are delighted that these five young players have all signed new long-term contracts. The plan is to build a team around a strong basis of young players in order to get them to develop their talent at the club.”
We’ve taken a look at those five players to see how they’ve fared since.
