Wenger rejects Arshavin exit talk

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has dismissed talk of Andrey Arshavin making an Emirates exit at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old Russia international has struggled for form this year, scoring six goals in 23 Premier League starts, and recent reports had linked him with a move back to former club Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia.

But Wenger, talking ahead of his sides’ weekend clash away to Stoke City, insists he is still a part of his plans, and refutes claims that Arshavin has been out-of-favour this season.

Talking to the Mirror, he said: “You know who the player is who was involved in most of the Premier League games this season? Arshavin, he has played as much as everyone else. I will talk to all the players at the end of the season, I don’t want to make out any individual cases.”

Arshavin has scored 22 goals in 76 league appearances for the Gunners since his £16.9m move from Zenit.
