Arsene Wenger announced last Friday that he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season, after almost 22 years in charge of the London club. Here are eight stars, including two Africans, who have been deemed as the Frenchman's worst signings for the Gunners.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see eight stars who have been tipped as Arsene Wenger's worst signings at Arsenal, according to various reports. 

According to FourFourTwo, Ivory Coast international Gervinho on the list as some of his performances baffled the club's supporters. The winger signed for the London club from Lille in 2011, and just could not find his feet during his two seasons with the Gunners.

Former Sweden international Kim Kallstrom was a deadline day signing by the 68-year-old, and although it was only a loan deal, it was rated by many as his worst. The 35-year-old broke his back during his time in London, and ended up making only four appearances, according to FFT.

The Irish Examiner considered South Korea international Park Chu-Young to be one of Wenger's worst purchases in his career, deeming the striker never good enough to be a Premier League player. Young made his dream move to the English top flight in 2011, costing the club about £4 million (R68 million) at the time, but managed only seven appearances, scoring just once, for Arsenal.

Marouane Chamakh had a fantastic start to his Gunners career, scoring 11 goals in his first 22 appearances, but after that things went south for him. The Moroccan was only able to score three more times in his 67 appearances for Arsenal, which was enough for the Daily Star to pick him as one of Wenger's worst buys.
