Arsenal Inundated With Offers For Midfield Wide-Man

Russian midfielder looks certain to leave the Emirates this summer.

Arsenal midfielder Andrei Arshavin is being inundated with offers from clubs looking to sign the player this summer, according to The Express.

The Russian player’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign and he looks certain to leave the Emirates Stadium after Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed the club were not looking to renew Arshavin’s contract.

Arshavin arrived at the club from Zenit St Petersburg for £15 million in 2009. He stated his Arsenal career in blistering form peaking during the club’s 4-4 draw with Liverpool where he netted all of his side’s four goals.

But his form has slipped in recent times and Arshavin is currently struggling to make much of an impact on the Gunners’ first team.

He has now slipped behind the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla in the Arsenal pecking order and has made just eleven first team appearances for the club this season.

Nine of those have come as a substitute and it appears Arshavin is ready to leave the club in the hopes of finding first team football.

There were rumours that the player was considering retirement but Arshavin has poured cold water on speculation he could hang up his boots and has revealed he has received a number of offers from clubs around Europe.

‘I’d consider if there is an offer from another Premier League club… I’m open from Germany or Spain, if there was an offer there. Or Russia,’ said Arshavin.

‘There was an offer [from another Premier League team] last winter, but I did not think it would be a good move for me.’
