When he left the Emirates in 2006, many wondered whether they would ever see the like of the Frenchman at the club again.
However, there could be fresh hope on the horizon after Pires' son, Theo, put pen to paper on a contract with Arsenal.
Taking to Instagram, Pires the elder confirmed the deal with a picture of his son alongside the caption “That's it ! Theo signed for the Arsenal Academy!!! Well done son!!!! #proud.”
But before any Arsenal fans get too excited, it's worth pointing out that Theo is only seven, so still some way from forcing his way into Arsene Wenger's plans.
We wouldn't rule out a League Cup appearance just yet though. We all know how Arsene feels about that particular cup competition.
Let's just hope he doesn't follow in the footsteps of footballer son flops like Brooklyn Beckham, Andrea Mancini and Shaqueel van Persie.
