In the news today:
With the transfer window closing just a matter of day ago, the rumour mill for January is already in full flow.
Reports on insidefutbol.com suggest that Arsenal winger, Andrei Arshavin will be offloaded to Anzhi Makhachkala in January where he will hook-up with Samuel Eto’o and Roberto Carlos.
The Russian has begun the 2011/12 in a stuttering manner, largely like his 2010/11 campaign, and Wenger may well see the big spending Russians as an option to recoup some of the fee paid to Zenit St Petersburg in 2009.
The 30 year old recently spoke to Express Sport in Russia about the departures of Nasri and Fabregas and his words hardly instilled confidence of his desire to stay. He said: “At the moment, losing Fabregas and Nasri is a catastrophe.
“Watching the Udinese match (last month in the Champions League qualifying stage), I thought that we didn’t have any one as comfortable with making passes and picking out the forwards.
“I am very glad that I was able to play in the same team as Fabregas. He is a truly class footballer.
“When people say that no-one is replacable though, I do not agree. With Arteta or whoever replaces those that have left, we will have to play different football, not the same as we played with Cesc and Samir.”
