It seems that Arsenal’s Belarus international Hleb is very keen to leave the club that made him the star that he is today and today’s speculation about a possible swap deal could well be just what Arsene Wenger’s side need!

Alot of conflicting reports have come out of the Hleb camp suggesting that talk of a move away from the Emirates has been generated by the midfielder’s agent looking to pave the way for an improved contract. In seperate interviews the 27 year old has claimed he loves the club and wouldn’t dream of moving, however other reports suggest that talks with Wenger about an improved deal failed, who know’s what to believe! However if this swap deal holds any water (and it could do given Arsene’s interest in Yaya, which has dated back for some teim) then maybe this deal would be the best for the Gunners anyway. Arguably Aliaksandr went off the boil big time as the season came to a climax and maybe filling Flamini’s boots would be a more important part of Arsenal’s squad alteration plans. Would Arsenal fans rather Yaya or Hleb? Does this swap deal sound like good sense?
