Ian Wright can't believe Arsenal missed out on Yaya Toure

Arsenal hero Ian Wright took to Twitter last night to vent his frustration over his former side's failure to secure the services of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

Wright posted a photo of the Citizens ace playing in an Arsenal shirt when he was playing in a trial match against Barnet in 2003.

At the time, of course, Yaya's brother Kolo was starring for the Gunners, but Arsene Wenger and Co. failed to sign him on in north London.

Ultimately, Toure has gone of to achieve great things in the game, and once again proved his credentials in City's Premier League clash with West Brom last night. 

Manuel Pellegrini's side comfortably beat the Baggies thanks to an inspired performance from the Ivorian, who scored a brilliant goal at the Hawthorns. 

Toure the talisman

There's no doubt about it, City fans will take great pleasure from Toure's magnificent display last night. The dynamic midfielder really looked like the Toure of old, and may well go on to lead the club to Premier League glory this term. 

Arsenal, of course, will be hoping to make a major impact on the Premier League scene this time round, but City will take some stopping if they continue to flourish throughout the course of the campaign. 

Wenger really did miss a trick when missing out on the brilliant Toure. 

Will Yaya Toure inspire City to the title this season? Have your say below!
