RUMOUR MILL: Hammers target out of favour Gooner

With the January transfer window looming as we head in to the middle of November, the speculation begins to arise about certain players and where they might go. I’ve so far been hearing a few names and one of those is ’s out of favour Russian, . Since the arrival of players like Gervinho, and even really before that Arshavin has been struggling to get first team football, apart from the Cup appearances and odd 30 minutes from the bench.

 

 I’ve always rated the now 31 year old highly, I like Arshavin’s pace, skill and ability to play in various positions and if I was Arsene Wenger, I would have been playing him, not looking to sell him!

 

Scoring 23 goals for Arsenal and 17 for the Russian national side, Arshavin, who plays predominantly as a winger hasn’t got a bad scoring record, although that’s not the main feature of his game. The 15 million pound signing Wenger made in 2009 does not seem as if he is part of any plans anymore, and I predict that if he does go up for sale, there will be more than a few interested parties.

 

To be honest, I can only see Arsenal’s number 23 returning home to finish his playing career in his native Russia, however if he was interested in a move to another Premier League club (at a cut price of course) Arshavin could be a very valuable asset indeed.

    I sincerely hope that this is just a copy filling piece and a rumour without substance! Because although he is an undoubtedly a talented player he’s is also,without doubt the most lazy and work shy player in the top division, his work rate and sulking would only be second to that child of of a player Anelka! Both would be a disaster for the team and the club! We have currently an excellent team spirit and our work rate and dedication is second to none! Why would we want to risk everything that we have worked so hard for since Big Sam took over by signing either of these devicive players?
