The Russian star was the Gunners’ record signing when he joined from Zenit St Petersburg, and was a hero in his first few months.
However, his decline has been quite remarkable, and he rarely gets in the Arsenal matchday squad these days; instead linked with a move away to Reading, Lazio or Monaco.
Perceived laziness has not helped; nor has being deployed on the left wing instead of in his favoured position behind the striker – where he would have to do decidedly less tracking back than on the flank.
If he can return to his previous Gunners form in France – and it is easy to forget Arshavin once scored four goals against Liverpool at Anfield and the winner against Barcelona – AS Monaco could have a fine player on their hands.
Arsenal meanwhile have been allowing many players to leave Emirates Stadium this January – with plenty of those departing on loan.
Perhaps the Gunners are clearing the path (and wage bill) for a marquee signing.
