Ex-Arsenal man hints at return

Published Add your comment

Former Birmingham City midfielder Sebastien Larsson has hinted that he may make a return to Arsenal this summer after being released by The Blues.

The Dane was close to moving to Newcastle United during the January transfer window, but after reaching the Carling Cup final, where Larsson helped overcome Arsenal in the final at Wembley, Larsson stayed on at St Andrews.

But now with the 26-year-old searching for a club, he's hinted that Arsenal are interested.

"They have shown some interest and I should know more in the next few days" he told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.


"I know there is some kind of interest but I cannot currently say whether something can be done or not."

"At the moment I do not know how it is going. I know who said that they have shown an interest but the next few days will tell."

With Arsenal looking to build a squad for another tilt at the Premier League title, a move for Larsson would come as a surprise, but with Arsene Wenger often reluctant to spend big on transfer, the Danish international would be ideal as a free transfer.

With Andrey Arshavin's future at Arsenal not secure and Samir Nasri talking with Manchester United, Larsson would come into a squad desperate for attacking players.
