I've just seen Sky Sports and Andrei Arshavin was outside his hotel wearing a pair of bermuda shorts, sun glasses and some flip flops.
He is in his element. Despite the weather freezing every British person's bits off, Arshavin wanted to top up his tan.
I was almost in tears this morning because of the cold, however the Russian's would eat this weather for breakfast.
Arshavin basking in the equivalent of a Russian summer over here is great news for Arsenal. The deal should finally be done.
It has taken an age but we are almost there. The 6th best player in the world is set to join. It will be a boost to the club and us Gooners. Going by recent displays we need him.
Let's not expect miracles straight away, he isn't match fit. When he gets that fitness back he will be a great signing for the club.
With Arshavin signing, Fabregas, Walcott, Eduardo and Rosicky to come back from injury Arsenal look strong enough to finish in the top four at least. I actually fancy a top three finish.
Keep it Goonerish.............
