Last of the Invincibles

‘Kolo has been a central figure in a very strong Arsenal team for many years, and I have been an admirer of him for a long time. He is strong, quick, reads the game well and will be an influential figure in the dressing room.’

Toure said: ‘It’s always difficult to leave a place where you have spent the last eight years and had good times but I felt the time was right for a new challenge. I am at an age, 28, where I feel I am at my peak and will play my best football.’

Hughes will be happy, too, with Onuoha’s commitment, which will see him earn £65,000 a week. He is one of the most promising and popular players in the dressing room.

Hughes was impressed with how he slipped in at centre half last season after Micah Richards was moved to right back and also with his showing for England in the European Under 21 Championship in Sweden.

Arsenal by contrast have made just one signing, central defender Thomas Vermaelen from Ajax, and have also sold Emmanuel Adebayor to City for £25m.

Wenger hinted that he will make more signings before the transfer window closes.

‘I am more focused on getting everybody fit for the start of the season but we are looking at opportunities as well,’ he said.

‘There are still some pre-season games to see what we really need. When the time comes we will do something.’
