Alex Hleb may have played his last game for Arsenal.

Hleb will be banned for Arsenal's last three games of the season after yesterday admitting a Football Association charge of violent conduct. He slapped Reading's Graeme Murty at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and Arsene Wenger must now hope it was not the midfielder's last game for the club, says the Guardian.

Arsenal's manager fears that Hleb has had his head turned by Inter Milan, who are prepared to offer him a substantial wage increase. Hleb courted controversy on the eve of the second leg of Arsenal's Champions League tie at Milan when he met Claudio Vigorelli, who brokers deals for Inter. It was later shrugged off by one of the agent's associates as nothing more than two friends having an ice cream.
