Arsenal can replicate Ian Wright deal by signing Michael Olise . If there is one person on this earth who has lived and breathed the very mantra of never giving up, it’s former Arsenal star Ian Wright.
The ex-striker was a marvel in the red and white at Highbury, scoring as many as 185 times in 288 outings for the Gunners.That record puts him second only to Thierry Henry on Arsenal’s list of all-time goal scorers.
However, the move to north London came relatively late in his career. Wrighty as he’s become affectionately known was a late bloomer, as he laid down the foundations for the Jamie Vardy’s of this world to show that no matter how old you are, there is always more potential to be extracted.
When it comes to players who found their touch late into their career, Wright and Vardy are two of the most famous examples of the Premier League era.
Back in March, the Leicester forward overtook the former with 94 goals after turning 30 – the most out of any player who has played Premier League football.
