Exclusive: Arshavin's agent answers Gooner Talk

arshavin-turn

Gooner Talk have managed to catch up with Andrei Arshavin’s representitive, Dennis Lachter.

The 27-year-old Russian hotshot has been linked with Arsenal for several months now with Ivan Gazidis looking to broker a potential £14 million pound deal.

Arsenal officials, led by Gazidis, had been invited to Zenit St. Petersburg to discuss the possibility of  Arshavin signing for the north London giants. Zenit turned down a £10 million bid, plus a possible £5 million at a later date according to president Alexei Petrov.

“Zenit have invited Arsenal officials to come to St Petersburg next Tuesday.

“Zenit does want to find an acceptable option for everyone.” said Petrov

Just days after refusing to give out any interviews to the International media, I posed a simple, but effective question to Israeli-born agent Lachter.

Will Arshavin – in your eyes – be an Arsenal player by the end of the current transfer window?

“I do believe that Andrey will be an Arsenal player.” he replied.

Lachter was present at the Emirates Stadium for the Gunners’ Champions League clash with Dynamo Kyiv in November. He praised the Arsenal atmosphere – labelling it ‘terrific’, but refused to answer any more questions on his client.

Stay tuned to Gooner Talk for the latest news and rumours concerning Arsenal football club.

We still don’t need a DM. An AM yo partner Denilson if anything. But Nasri should be in the middle with either a new left winger signed as well as Arshavin or Vela starting.

good job on the exclusive how did you actually get it anyway?

Guest

His email, along with thousands of other agents, is on the FIFA website.

Rocky, I don’t need to delete your comment, the majority of people who read this article know it’s reliable and concrete.

Keep commenting, keep visiting – the more the merrier for me. :)

gooner chris do you think that arsenal might sign more than just arshavin during this transfer window and if so any idea who?

Guest

Rico – No, wenger won’t buy a player he recommended and could have signed for free.

Guest

@ Rico

I heard it was man utd or man city… certainly wouldnt mind getting him though. quality player. Maybe we shouldn’t have let him slip through after his trial.

Guest
goonerguy
7 years 26 days ago

that would be annoying if we did sign palacios as we were the 1’s who took him on trial then told wigan about him and they signed him so to then buy him from them for over £10 million is just idiotic

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

Spurs will sign Palacios for around £14 million.

It’s such a shame really, we could of got him on the cheap before he joined Wigan.

And yes, I do believe we’ll sign more than one player, not too sure of names at the moment though.

Guest
rico
7 years 25 days ago

yh he had him on trial but who no’s buying a player who had no european or top south american team experience may have been a risk and bruce said its definatly not man utd dunno if its city but didnt they just bid for de jong and they already have kompany an for me that seems a bit congested

Guest

Is it me or is the article worded in such a way that it seems you asked Lachter while he was at the Dynamo game…? Probably just me. We won’t sign Palacios, i think its got to be city going in with the second bid, Ferguson said that hes not buying anyone else. Wenger doesnt seem to like keeping hold of defensive midfielders does he?

Any thoughts ?

Guest

No Jack, I didn’t even go to that game, LOL.

I asked if he’d ever been to the Emirates before, he said yes, he atteneted the Kyiv game.

Guest

lol…I smell bullshit. you are clever though. you know its a good chance he’ll sign so you made sure in your made up quote you included

“I believe” he will be an arsenal player, and “in your eyes”

so that covers you basically if the deal doesn’t happen. Very clever, very manipulative. Def would get you plenty of clicks. Unbelievable. Should be ashamed mate.

All you lot believing an agent of such a high profile footballer would reply to an email from a complete stranger and quite frankly a nobody, are so fucking naive its unreal.

Replying to a guy from goonertahahahahahalk, ridiculous.

Guest
chris
7 years 25 days ago

mate its not like the agents actually revealing anything ‘top secret’ is it?, all he says in the quote is ‘i believe he will be an arsenal player’..not really revealing much to do with any deal

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

Blue Lights, you obviously have a massive problem with the fact that a football agent replied to my website.

I’m hardly going to make fucking quotes up to get hits, I don’t acheive anything from it at all.

Steven, the Zenit president quotes are from Sky, I never claimed they were exclusive to me – looks like you’re the thick one, get your facts right.

Guest
Steven
7 years 25 days ago

is this similar to your ‘exclusive’ when you said flamini was staying?

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

No, because I backed myself up with a link to that information.

How is it similar? You’re not the fizziest drink in the fridge are you?!

Guest
Steven
7 years 25 days ago

i meant was it similar in the fact that it is complete bullshit, you moron. It’s obvious arshavin is going to sign, you’re just jumping on the bandwagon

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

It was on the old version of this blog, when I jumped to conclusion and when I had no real sources either.

I’m not jumping on the bandwagon, I’ve got an answer from the agent of Arshavin and I’ve posted it up – what’s the problem?

Guest
Joe
7 years 25 days ago

I don’t get some of you lot, Chris comes up with a gem of an article, which he did out of his own knowledge of knowing where to find Lachter’s email address, mobile number, fax machine.. Appreciate his good work will ya?

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

Nice article mate, Hoping that we’ll have Arshavin before Cardiff game to see whats hes capable of. :)

Steven and Blue Lights have completely owned Gooner Chris — who talks so much bullshit it’s unbelievable.

Guest

JohnA, why do you come on this site, other than to talk utter bollocks, Chris, can you ban these morons IP’s?:|

Guest
chris

apparantly we are willing to only go as high as 15million, hoping zenit don’t want higher…

GoonerChris — any reason why your exclusive n Lachter isn’t available any more?

Fear of being sued?

In other words, Thugz, you have no suggestion as to why the: http://goonertalk.com/2009/01/17/exclusive-lachter-answers-gooner-talk/

was deleted.

Deluded muppets. It was obviously deleted because GoonerChris knew he was making stuff up which could land him in court.

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

John, you’re hilarious.

It was exactly the same article as this one, but I deleted it as I wanted my match report to appear before it.

How will this land me in court? Get real, please.

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

Its working for me.:]

Guest
7 years 25 days ago

John, your use of the word ‘owned’ completely sums you up. Immature, un-intelligent teenager.

Guest
JohnA
7 years 25 days ago

Right on the heading, you say: “Exclusive:. Exclusive implies you’re the only source that the said person has talked to with the information you have.

And that is bullshit because you have copied the quotes off Sky and claimed that he has made contact with you.

Libelous, and that could land you in court. Stop bullshitting. No-one with any degree of perspective is buying it.

Guest

Wow. I mean why not?! Anyone can get any of the agents’ email from fifa.com. Just write, if he answers cool, if not, who cares?!I still don’t totally believe that it was Lachter who wrote back. Of course, Zenit had already gone public with this. Something actually might happen next week. I just hope Xabi Alonso and Upson are also coming.

Guest
