Aliaksandr Hleb, sometimes referred to in English as Alexander Hleb (Belarusian: Аляксандр Глеб, born May 1, 1981 in Minsk), is a Belarusian footballer who plays in midfield for Arsenal and the Belarus national team.

In 2000 he joined Germany side VfB Stuttgart from BATE Borisov for approximately 150 000 USD. He quickly established himself as one of the most important players of the side.

On June 28, 2005 he joined English side Arsenal for a sum which may reach 10 million GBP (depending on performance). Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger will most likely use Hleb at many different midfield positions next year, but in the long term, Hleb will probably replace either Fredrik Ljungberg or Robert Pirès. Hleb has agreed to a 4-year contract with Arsenal. He is also known as a dead-ball specialist who will help on Arsenal's corners, and he could become the free-kick taker ahead of Thierry Henry. He had a very successful pre-season with Arsenal, scoring his first goal in his first appearance for the Gunners within two minutes of coming off the bench at half-time.

On August 21, 2005 he played his first full official match for Arsenal away to Chelsea. He received favorable reports from medias after this match, with a 'Best possible debut' tag and was one of the players who received best marks. However, soon after Hleb sustained a knee injury while on international duty with Belarus and was out for several months. He returned to the Arsenal first team squad in December, playing 60 minutes in Arsenal's final UEFA Champions League group stage match against Ajax on December 7.
