Okay, I was reading through the papers and came across an article saying that Andrei Arshavin is keen on a move to the Premiership and he would only move to one of the top four teams as he wants to play Champions League football. Now we can not just ignore this as we are one of the top four teams so maybe Andrei Arshavin would want to move to Liverpool?

But thinking of it now and thus the reason I have put together this post to hear your guys thoughts, do we need Arshavin at Liverpool? There is no doubting that he is a world class player and a player which literally any team would want to have but where would he fit in at Liverpool? One would think that he would play in the role Keane is currently playing now which would mean Keane would have to spend the rest of his time at Anfield on the bench as it would be Torres and Arshavin upfront. On paper, a Torres Arshavin partnership could be lethal but I feel Torres and Keane can just be as effective as we have seen so far this season. Mind you, Arshavin has never played in the Premiership before so he may not be able to adjust to the play in the Premiership and he could be another big money flop. And with a potential transfer fee of £24m, is that worth it?

What are your thoughts?
