Arsenal are in talks with Spartak Moscow star Kim Kallstrom in a move which will leave Arsenal fans feeling distinctly underwhelmed.
All of the talk at the Gunners this month has been about Julian Draxler but instead the North London side are set to snap up the 31-year-old as midfield cover before the transfer deadline this evening.
Kallstrom is a very experienced player, with a solid background in European football having spent several years at Lyon between 2006 and 2012 before moving onto Russian football.
He’s also one of Sweden’s most capped players with 108 caps and counting with 16 international goals to his name.
However, one of his best goals wasn’t for Sweden, it was one of his 17 that he managed during his time with Lyon, a cracker against Bordeaux.
No Arsenal fan could argue if he replicates the above in an important match over the second half of the season.
