Unsettled midfielder Alex Hleb will leave Arsenal this summer, according to his agent. The Belarus international has been strongly linked with a move to Internazionale in recent weeks and agent Nikolai Shpilevski believes it is inevitable that his client will quit the Emirates Stadium. Reports claim the 27-year-old, who joined the Gunners from Stuttgart three years ago and has scored ten times in 129 appearances, is looking to buy himself out of the remaining two years of his contract. "Alexander is preparing to make the most important move of his life," said Shpilevski. "He is leaving Arsenal even though they want to offer him a new long-term contract and better conditions. "Only time will tell if leaving is the right decision, but there's no way back now. "Everything will be cleared up in the next two weeks."
