10. Samir Nasri
We begin our countdown with the French international Samir Nasri. A playmaker by birth, Nasri was hailed to be a perfect footballer for Arsenal and he along with Cesc Fabregas would rattle the defence through their passes and vision alone. Nasri would be given the freedom to attack more up front while Fabregas remained back and orchestrated the attack. But a move to Manchester City (in pursuit of a greater salary) proved to be a costly decision for him because even though he still is one of the best in City, he is nowhere the player he used to be. However, he is slowly regaining his lost form and momentum but his prime years are behind him now.
