Today is Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira’s 39th birthday and in honour of one the best skippers we’ve ever had, it could be a good chance to examine the best talents Arsene Wenger has unearthed.

Vieira is exclusively regarded as Wenger’s best discovery, but there remain a number of former and current players that could potentially rival him for that title.
Arsenal transfer news
Here are what we believe to be Wenger’s top six discoveries:
6) Freddie Ljungberg
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
- Arsenal reportedly set to sign free agent after impressive trial
- Arsenal have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Bayern Munich II star
The super Swede was one of Wenger’s first signings as a permanent manager and arrived off the back of Wenger’s first double in 1998.
Ljungberg certainly took his chance, taking his position on the right and becoming a lethal goal threat throughout his stay.
During his time with us Ljungberg won two league titles and four FA Cups, while also transforming himself into a marketing behemoth – the Swedish David Beckham!
