It’s fair to say nobody, but nobody was predicting this move from way out left field this time yesterday, but the quirky deal is now done: Arsenal have confirmed Kim Källström on loan from Spartak Moscow for the rest of the season.
With Mathieu Flamini set to miss the next 3 games, the Swede is being brought in as defensive midfield reinforcement, back-up as Arsenal attack the Champions League knock-out stages and Premier League title race.
Kallstrom told Arsenal media, as reported by their website:
“Arsenal is an amazing club with a lot of great players and a coach who has done really well here for a long time. I am so pleased to come here to learn as much as possible.
I’m here to do my best for Arsenal and to help out the team, so we can achieve good results for the last part of the season.”
So Gooners, who’s for getting Kallstrom on the back of their shirts then?!
