I’m sure many of you were following the transfer deadline day in a frenzy yesterday, as we all waited with baited breath to see whether Arshavin actually would sign for Arsenal.
It seems he has but even now on Tuesday we are waiting for official confirmation from Arsenal!
“Now I can say only one thing – that if I play for Arsenal, it will be at number 23.”
These rumours started in the summer, and resurfaced before the window opened. To be honest I just got bored with it, and I haven’t written much about potential transfers at all because it became so tedious.
What is more interesting is the fact that we now have a new player who can play across midfield and in the hole, and will add a whole new dimension to our game.
When the whole midfield is fit it is going to be very exciting, Rosicky, Fabregas, Arshavin, Nasri etc.. They are all creative players and Wenger will be spoilt for choice.
For now Arshavin can fill the creative hole left by Cesc’s injury, although he will need to build up fitness, as the Russian season finished in November.
He says he will probably wear the no.23 shirt and I think he might just be a breath of fresh air, coming at exactly the right time!
