22 June 2008 12:14
German side Wolfsburg are the latest club to show an interest in Arsenal midfielder Alex Hleb. Barcelona and Bayern Munich have both been linked with the Belarus international, who ha spoken since the end of last season of his desire to leave the Gunners this summer. Wolfsburg are managed by Hleb's former coach from his Stuttgart days, Felix Magath, who has already snapped up Palermo duo Cristian Zaccardo and Andrea Barzagli this summer. "Alexander Hleb is a very interesting player," Magath told the Wolfsburger Nachrichten newspaper. "He came to me at Stuttgart and became a regular first-team player there." Wolfsburg will be playing in the UEFA Cup in the 2008-09 campaign.
