Arsenal winger would consider leaving

Published Add your comment

Andrey Arshavin would consider leaving Arsenal if he continues to be 'glued' to the bench, although the Russian winger is intent on regaining his place at the Emirates Stadium.

Arshavin has started on eight occasions for the Gunners this season, while he has found the net on two occasions for the north London club.

However, in more recent weeks, the 30-year-old has been restricted to substitute appearances during a sustained period of excellent form for Arsenal.

At the moment, though, Arshavin is prepared to stay with Arsenal and convince Arsene Wenger he is worthy of a regular starting berth.

"Right now I don't think about changing clubs. If I will be benched for a very long time, then such an issue might be relevant,” the Gunners winger told Sport Express.

“I still want to play for 90 minutes, but now I am glued to the bench. I wouldn't like to play for a Russian club other than Zenit [St Petersburg], and there were no contacts with Anzhi Makhachkala."

Along with a switch back to his native Russia, Arshavin has been linked with summer move away from Arsenal to Serie A.
