Arsenal’s supposed pursuit of Andrei Arshavin has filled the newspapers this week. The last time Arsène Wenger spoke on the issue was after the FA Cup tie with Plymouth last Saturday but he is sure to face questions on the Russian playmaker at Friday’s press conference.

In the meantime there is only one way to find out what is really going on – watch Arsenal TV Online’s exclusive interview with Wenger. In it, the Frenchman was asked:

  • whether he is really going for Arshavin
  • if buying Arshavin would end his search for a defensive midfielder
  • continuing rumours on Kolo Toure’s future
  • stories suggesting Arsenal are after a keeper
  • building confidence slowly once more
  • balancing the League and the FA Cup
  • the continuing Allardyce influence on Bolton
  • the signing of Johan Elmander
  • the Man United v Chelsea game
