Andrey Arshavin's agent claims his client could leave Arsenal in the summer.
The little Russian said on Monday playing for Barcelona would be the "pinnacle" of his career and Dennis Lachter did nothing to dispel growing rumours of Arshavin's impending departure, claiming doubts over Arsene Wenger's long-term future are causing unrest within the club.
"Andrey staying and a lot of other things depend on one man - we would like to know that Arsene Wenger will be at Arsenal next season. The main thing about Arsenal is not Andrey, (Cesc) Fabregas or (Robin) van Persie," Lachter told Goal.com UK
"What happens to them depends on what happens to Mr Wenger. Arsenal today is 95 per cent Arsene Wenger. The influence and charisma of Mr Wenger to Arsenal fans, the management and the Arsenal family is huge.

Arsghavin signed for the Gunners in a �17m deal back in February 2009, making an immediate impact and ensuring hero status with four goals in a memorable 4-4 draw at Liverpool.

Lachter, though, is indicating another move is on the cards.
"It is not a secret for anybody that he has a big respect for Barcelona and it's not a secret for anybody that I agreed the move from Zenit to Barcelona for 15 million euros six months before his move to Arsenal. I know Andrey would like to play there but he is a player for Arsenal," he added.
