After struggling for first-team action at Inter, Kanu was snapped up by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on 15 January 1999 for £4.15 million.
He made 119 appearances for the North London club and scored 44 goals, before departing for West Bromwich Albion in 2004.
During his time at the Gunners, Kanu won two Premier Leagues, two FA Cups and one FA Community Sheild.
