And the diminutive Russian playmaker certainly lived up to expectations.
Arshavin may not have reached the heights that many in north London had hoped for, but his influence in those first few months after the transfer was enormous.
When Arshavin signed, Arsène Wenger's side were five points behind the top four, but they only lost one game after signing him and comfortably secured fourth place as well as Champions League qualification.
He scored six goals in 15 games between his debut and the end of the season, including that famous four when Arsenal drew 4-4 against Liverpool at Anfield.
