Exclusive: Arshavin’s agent answers Gooner Talk
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.
