Rio in his prime would've certainly been a key player for Tottenham but he would've faced some stiff competition from the likes of Davison Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Alexandre Lacazette missed two late chances for Arsenal.

It was no cheap stunt either. with Lacazette jerseys costing anywhere between £71 and £116, according to the club website.

Normally so meticulous, Wenger was forced to act on the hoof during a turbulent transfer window for Arsenal.
