Hleb signs for Arsenal

Arsenal.com reports that Alexander Hleb has signed for Arsenal in a deal that could rise to €15 million. The Belarussian midfielder arrives from VfB Stuttgart. The move is dependant on Hleb passing a medical and obtaining a work permit.

It is not clear where Arsène will play Hleb. He may continue his role on the right of midfield, possibly replacing Freddie if he decides to go. However, he may play more in the Bergkamp position, and could be seen as his replacement. I look forward to seeing Hleb in action, and the pre-season matches may give us a clue as to what Arsène will do with him.
