Wenger set for Russian talks
Arsene Wenger says Andrey Arshavin could have a future at Arsenal but a host of other players are set to leave.
It looked as though the Russian was heading for the exit door at the Emirates Stadium after he spent the second half of last season on loan at former side Zenit St Petersburg, but Wenger says there is still a chance he could stay. The Frenchman may not give up on the player who cost Arsenal £15million when he arrived in January 2009 and will hold talks with him before deciding what the future holds. "Arshavin, it depends. We have to sit together and have talks. He could still have a future at the club," Wenger revealed. However there is no future for Nicklas Bendtner, Sebastien Squillaci and Park Chu-Young, who have all been told they are free to get fixed up with other clubs. "Bendtner, Squillaci and Park will be on their way to go somewhere," Wenger confirmed. Offloading the trio will give Wenger scope to bring in further new signings with two more arrivals said to be in the pipeline.
