Arsene Wenger has once again hinted at a possible arrival of Andrei Arshavin at Arsenal this January. As Arshavin has already played Champions League this season with Zenit, hence, according to the rules, he is not eligible to play in the Champions League for another club in the same season. The Arsenal boss explained:
“I feel that if we do add somebody, we add somebody who has a special class. And I would like to think longer term than just whether that player is eligible for the Champions League this season.”
Talking of special class, Arshavin is the guy! Despite the fact that Arsenal’s chairman Peter Hill-Wood has played down chances of Arsenal to spend big this January, Wenger’s comments in my view refer to none but the Russian playmaker. Both the comditions he mentioned are fulfilled by Arshavin so once again I see hope of him signing for Arsenal. Maybe he is giving hints at his possible transfer which might take a couple of weeks to complete so that Arsenal fans don’t get frustrated. Lets hope for the best!
