At £15m the Russian playmaker is Arsenal’s record signing but he has fallen on hard times at The Emirates. His form has gradually slipped away from him during his time at the club but despite this problem he is still and always will be an extremely talented player. Performances like his against Bolton in the Carling Cup proved that when played in his favourite position he is still a deadly player and with only six months left on his contract there may be a few teams willing to take a punt on the pint sized midfielder.
