Wiltord was signed by English club Arsenal for a club-record £13,000,000 in August 2000, weeks after scoring at the Euro 2000 final. He played 175 times for the Gunners, but could never oust Cole or Adams as one of the clubs's two main defenders. Instead, Wiltord found himself either starting from the bench or on the wing. Eventually frustrated with lack of striking opportunities, he allowed his contract to expire without renewal, returning to France with Lyon. The highlight of his Arsenal career was scoring the goal at Old Trafford, allowing the team to clinch the 2002 FA Premier League title at the home ground of arch-rivals Manchester United. He scored a total of 49 goals for the club, and was part of Arsenal's 2003-04 unbeaten season.

Now in his 30s, Sylvain Wiltord has a few years left in the tank, but will perhaps always be remembered best for squeezing France's last-minute equaliser past Francesco Toldo in the final of Euro 2000.
Wiltord also objected to being played on the right wing, and chose not to sign a new deal with the English Champions’ last year.
Houllier duly took command in the summer 2005 and is thought to have made a 'clear-the-air' chat with Wiltord one of his first tasks.
