Hleb To Follow Flamini Out The Back Door

Hleb To Follow Flamini Out The Back Door

Alex Hleb's agent claims the tricky trickster will become the second player to walk out on the Gunners this summer after Matty Flamini left for AC Milan.

Speculation has been rife over the past couple of weeks after stories broke regarding the tapping up of the player by Inter Milan, indeed Arsene Wenger is set to report the Italians to FIFA.

Hleb's agent claims, 'Alexander is preparing to make the most important moves of his life.'

'He is leaving Arsenal even though they want to offer him a new long-term contract and better conditions. Only time will tell if leaving is the right decision, but there's no way back now. Everything will be cleared up in the next two weeks.'

Two of Arsenal's most influential players leaving within weeks of each other? Surely Arsene Wenger now has to open the cheque book and sign some real experienced players?

I think Alex has been ready to leave for a while now. After an awesome start to the season, he trailed off around Christmas. Maybe thats why the team did a little. Over the last few months though, he hasn't looked his usual self. Let's not get all doom and gloom though. I'd rather a fully commited player any day of the week. Good luck to him. It's just a shame that players are going and it's not on our terms.

All who wish to leave should do so, and quickly too.

Exactly...a blessing in disguise. 11 goals in 3 yrs- not good at all. Our past succes were built on the ability of the midfiled not just to create goals but to score them ....like i said in a previous post Hleb typifies one the major problems at Arsenal this season...ball possession, close clontrol, creating opportunities - but no end point...GOALS...in my mind apart from injuries to Rosicky and Edourado, Eboue and Hleb didnt contribute much apart from pretty play and possession football (...well take out Eboue from that too)...If we are too succeed we will have to replace Hleb with a midfielder who can guarantee 10 - 12 goals..Bergkamp/Pires/Ljunberg all did it in the past and kept us up. we also know we cant rely on Rosicky to last more than half a season. Pity though, with the financial situation which non of us are truly apprised about I hope Wenger can pull of some magic this summer. I do have hope for next season...but all things considered, i'm sticking with Wenger and this team

Hleb is a fantastic footballer. Just because he's going, I won't deny that. However, I do feel sometimes he'd be happy playing on a pitch with no goals on it. Shot-shy is an understatment, it can be so frustrating. Still he is a Wenger player: Great touch, eye of a needle, who's in a better position than me!

Hopefully we can sign a proper winger now. Not a midfielder, play maker, striker who is pushed to the wing. The last winger we had was Ljungberg. Since then we have forced Diaby, Walcott, Hleb, Rossicky, Denilson, Fabregas(sometimes), Van Persie, Eduardo even Bentdner out there. How about signing someone like Mancini of Roma or Young

This really is a shame. A talented and highly skilled player, and certainly one of our better players this season. Still, until I see pictures of him holding up an Inter top or concrete evidence I won't believe it.
