Hleb's agent has dropped the bombshell that his client has failed to settle in London and it looks as though he will be leaving the Emirates Stadium for pastures new.
Inter Milan have always been favourites to land the Belarusian should he go but now Real have thrown their hat into the ring after learning that the player could be on the move.
Schuster is looking to draft in more quality and admits Hleb has now been added to his wanted list.
"There are a couple of positions that we can improve and that needs to be strengthened to have the necessary balance," he told AS. "Over the past two months we have had a plan and we know what we want, but now Hleb has been added.
"We did not know he could leave Arsenal but in recent days it has been more positive. We were surprised that he might leave there."
