According to our friends at “Gooner Talk” Andrei Arshavin will be an Arsenal player in the coming days,having agreed a 5 year deal worth a reported £18m.
So what do we know about him? And if this is true where is he going to fit in at Arsenal? He is a versatile Striker who can also play as an attacking midfielder or a winger, Maybe Wenger will use him as a winger as cover for Walcott and Rosicky. Or as cover for Cesc?

Personally I feel £18m is a lot of money for a player of his age and who has not played outside of Russia. For all we know this might turn out like Reyes and he will become homesick after a few weeks.
And do we really need a striker when we have Vela and Eduardo coming back?
I still feel we need a DM rock, Well lets wait and see…..
