Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that Russian midfielder Andrei Arshavin could still have a future at the club as he is set to hold talks with the player.
The 31 year old moved to the Emirates in January of 2009 from Zenit for £15m but has since struggled to adjust himself to the rigors of the English game. The little Russian has always been regarded as one with great ability but he failed to reproduce his form for Russia in the Premier League. Wenger, as he aims to gather more funds to bring in more players this summer, was believed to be keen on offloading the midfielder with Zenit and Al Sadd both interested in his signature. However, the Arsenal manager confirmed that he is planning to talk with the estranged attacking midfielder and sort out his future.
“Arshavin, it depends. We have to sit together and have talks. He could still have a future at the club,” said Wenger in the Daily Mail.
However, Wenger announced that the trio of Nicklas Bendtner, Sebastian Squillaci and Park Chu-Young will be most definitely heading out of the club before the start of season.
“Bendtner, Squillaci and Park will be on their way to go somewhere,” said Wenger.
