Exclusive: Arshavin set to sign new contract

Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin is close to sealing a new contract extension with the Gunners, Gooner Talk understands.

The 29-year-old, who was linked with Barcelona in January, is expected to pen a 1-year extension which will see him stay at the club until 2013.

Despite fuelling speculation over his continuing links to Spain, the outspoken Russian, who joined Arsenal from Zenit St Petersburg in January 2009, has finally decided to show his commitment to the cause.

Last season, Arshavin scored 14 goals and made 9 assists.

Front page on Arsenal.com “Szczesny – I don’t want to go on loan again” @goonerchris Do you think he’ll be made no 1? He’s better than Almunia, Fabianski and Mannone. But I don’t know if he’s capable of bearing the weight of our club on his shoulders.

Szczesny is good enough, has the right attitude, and has Wenger’s backing. If ever Wenger should trust youth, it is in the case of him. I’m all for a new GK, but between Mannone, Fabianski, or Szczesny, it’s the younger Pole all day long. Give him a chance Arsene if you don’t sign anyone.

I sure as hell wouldn’t want to push Almunia, Fabianski, or Mannone in the deep end against Liverpool either. I think it really should be a new keeper or Szczesny. Almunia was guilty of so many errors, Fabianki’s overall goalkeeping mechanics are so bad, and that fact that Mannone is the lesser of the two prodigies means that Szczesny should be given the jersey between the current 4, I mean if Wenger really rates him.

It’s time us Arsenal fans were not so docile. Once a week we should each bombard UEFA & FIFA with a letter of complaint regarding Barca’s conduct which could cause the 2 bodies an Admin nightmare. Also en masse Arsenal fans should send vitriolic emails to mouthy Barca players such as Puyol & also to the stirrer in chief Balague who takes the money from Sky in this country & then attempts to unsettle the best players in the Premier League to move to Spain. Also we should deluge Arsenal with letters of complaint that the club has failed again… Read more »

Chris, do you think that the fact that AW didn’t sign a keeper yet and the club is in training camp means anything ? If I was AW I would have signed a keeper before the training camp so he could develop an understanding with his new defense…

So does that mean he’ll be choosing from Szczesny, Mannone and Fabianski or will he bring someone eventually?

Do you personally have some info?

@REDgoon:

Good comments RedGoon, but having Almunia, Fabianski and Manonne previously, I think there is less pressure on Chesney then say if he was following on from Seaman or Lehmann..typing this made me realise we need a keeper with a man in the surname!

To be fair arshavin hasn’t said anything bad in ages and is a quality player. It has to be chezzers or a new gk… not clowns 1 and 2 plus mannone…

Good news! Lets hope he has a better season this time around.

On the GK situation, Give Szczesny the chance to play & bring in the best CB & DM we can afford.. With a solid foundation Szczesny would have all the confidence in the world!

I cant believe some people are clamoring for Wenger to allow szczesny to man the goal for us this season. At best, he should be playing in the fa/carling cup to gain more experience. ( maybe some pl games)
The same people asking Wenger to [play him would be the same people to call for his head when he makes costly errors.

Arshavin wants to stay because Baca don’t want him. I wonder if this will make him shut up and get on with his job.

when he was interested in playing for arsenal he was my favourate player…. When he became ‘ sulky chops’ and kept going on about how shit london is but how great cuntalona is i started to go off him… When i saw him feign injury against barca, limping on the pitch till he got substituted the he ran down the tunnel… This can only be forgiven by him giving us a 20 goal season AND a bit of effort

it is said replacement for dudu will be Suarez!!! Yes!! A deadly goal scorer!!!

http://www.calcionews24.com/arsenal-caccia-al-trio-dellajax.html

As expected, after the World Cup game is hunting for talents who have been more on display in South Africa.
Among these, three play nell’Ajax and Arsenal could end block: This is Maarten Stekelenburg, Gregory van der Wiel and Luis Suarez, for which the Gunners have made an overall assessment of approximately 42 million pounds.
The offensive of the three English clubs lancers will not wait even to anticipate the time the other competitors to three players.

Is it just me or does arshavin look fitter than he ever has been while he’s been with us? I wonder now that Eduardo is leaving and wish him well at Shakhtar, if we are going to get a replacement for him.
