Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has taken a gamble with his loan signing of Spartak Moscow midfielder Kim Kallstrom.

Kallstrom moved to Arsenal on a six-month loan from Spartak Moscow.

Spartak splashed out £3million to sign the Swede in 2012 from Lyon, but he never settled in Moscow.

During his 18 months with Spartak, Kallstrom made just 28 starts and Arsene Wenger's decision to invest in the Swede has been met with surprise, especially when his initial target was 20-year-old Julian Draxler of Schalke.
