Portuguese international winger Luis Boa Morte helped Arsenal to win the 'double' in 1997/98. Previously with Sporting Lisbon, he joined the Gunners in June 1997 and his pace was a constant threat to defences. He appeared in Arsenal's 1998 and 1999 FA Charity Shield successes and regularly featured as a substitute, playing 25 Premiership games before being sold to Southampton for £500,000 in August 1999. Joining Fulham for a reported £1,700,000 in July 2000, he starred in their 2000/01 First Division title triumph and 2003/04 FA Cup run. He was a member of Portugal's squad that reached the 2006 World Cup semi-finals. (With thanks to Leigh Edwards)
