This is a list of all the players who have been fiercely linked with Arsenal and where they eventually signed. This is meant to b a comprehensive list, but is simply a list of the players from 2009+ who were linked to Arsenal but signed deals elsewhere.

Diego: taken from Arsenal by Juventus for €24.5m on 5/26/09

Yoann Gourcuff:  Bordeaux exercised their €15m buy out clause and took the midfielder from us 5/28/09. Linked with trade rumors in 2008 in a swap for Adebayor.

You’re e Jerkoff: Chelsea signed this Zenit St. Racistberg CSKA Moscow player for £18.5m on 5/29/09.  Breaking Andrei Arshavin’s little heart in the process.

Gareth “I want European Football” Barry: Linked with Arsenal for nearly two seasons starting in 2008. Signed from Aston Villa to Mercenarychester City on 6/2/09 for a mere £12m to Villa, oh, and a £60,000 a week raise.

Yaya Toure: linked every season to Arsenal and every season basically says “why would I want to play there?” Barca got him to sign a one year extension in 2009, staving off speculation at least until January 2010.

    You do realize that Zhirkov plays For CSKA Moscow, not Zenit St. Racistberg.
