Arshavin deal to be wrapped up in next TWO DAYS

As Gooner Talk told you yesterday, Zenit St Petersberg are hopeful of completing the deal of Andrei Arshavin to Arsenal in the next 48 hours.

27-year-old versatile playmaker Arshavin attracted Arsene Wenger’s interest on the strength of two spectacular Euro 2008 performances against Sweden and the Netherlands as well as some astute games in the Champions League, and it’s Wenger’s Arsenal who are in the front seat to sign him.

The ever-reliable Sky Sports News said that Zenit lowered their asking price on Friday and that they have subsequently been in discussions with Arsenal officials today. The Russian giants are hopefuly that the deal will be completed in the following two days.

Another source, NewsTalk radio say that Arshavin has been pulled from the Zenit team before their pre-season friendly. This was reportedly because he was on his way to England. Gooner Talk can confirm this is true, but it remains to be seen whether he was not involved due to successful negotiations with the Emirates-based side.

Stay tuned to Gooner Talk for the latest updates on Arshavin’s ongoing move to Arsenal.

Hope you’re right Gooner Chris… I was about to start a petition amongst fellow Gooners to donate a pound each just to raise half a million in a desperate attempt to secure AA’s services.. Surely if Zenit want another million then we can give them a million in another currency like Thai Baht and then their directors can go out and have a great time in Bangkok because these guys really seriously need to get a life and have some fun!!

I wish people would stop trusting SSN as a source… they’re turning into Clubcall or The Star!!!

I assume this story has come from SSN?

The same channel that said they understood City had made a bid and that his preferred destination was Eastlands!

I don’t see the point of this post. We’ve been getting this for the past week. What’s different about this post?

Guest

They are playing a waiting game hoping to force anything more out of Arsenal.No way! they should takeit or leave it. But to face the fact the guy will add something really special to our team.

Guest
7 years 17 days ago

Yes, it’s from SSN.

They are a reliable news source. The amount of times they’ve broken transfer stories before anyone else is unbelievable.

Very few times do they things wrong.

SSN said that Zenit lowered their asking price on friday & that they have been in discussions with Arsenal today, they are hopeful the deal will be completed in 48hrs. Also on Newstalk radio today they said that Arshavin had been pulled from the Zenit team at the last minute before their pre season friendly & was on his way to England. I know he didn’t play today or come off the bench but I can’t find anything to say whether he was one of the subs or not & no other news source has said anything about this happening,… Read more »

Where is the article Chris?

I’ve been hearing “48 hours” for practically a week. What makes you think this is any different from all the incorrect media reports of the past few weeks.

SSN has practically turned into tabloid trash so you can’t trust what they say.

I dont trust SSN, last year they broke exclusive news that Arsenal were going to sign Rodrigo Palacio from River Plate.

It later emerged that the transfer was made up by a blogger, says a lot about the quality of SSN’s sources.

I have this feeling that we are going to land the Russian and the guy will provide the cutting edge we have badly missed this season. Our goal difference clearly shows that we have lacked both in attack and defensively. A DM is equally a must this coming week.

48 hours starting when.. I’m sure I’ve heard this before.

48 hours to sign a few signatures to a deal been mooted for 6 months and discussed everyday for 3 weeks. Even if they were using hoofs to sign, those signatures would have already been done.

Zenit is yanking our chain.

Guest

Kaykk – Well that would certainly explain why he didn’t play then.

To be honest I have a feeling we’re going to hear “48 Hrs” & “Still in negotiations” right up until deadline day. The only way that won’t happen is if Arsenal come out & say they have called off all discussions, because despite what Zenit said today they clearly want to sell him.

Let’s face it any posts could be complete fabricated rubbish… this has become a fast buck news story for most journalists! Obviously it’s now becoming tiresome and we have to have faith that our negotiators are doing their upmost to finalise this deal.. I really hope they don’t give up on Andrei Arshavin because he deserves to play for the best club suited to his needs and that clearly has to be Arsenal… if Man City came in for him then he would soon become a bit part player because it appears to be Pantomime season all year around what… Read more »

It seems like the nasri saga all over again! i think we have a good chance of signing him now maybe 80/20 but every day the story gets muddled up. last night they rejected our offer and today its back on! arsenal have to vow never to let this happen again and dont deal with these russian clubs!!! if Once this transfer window is closed I will be having a big glass of wine followed by two bottles and erasing news now!! :)

every ones getting so excited about this signing of Arshain it seems alot of fans and Wenger himself are forgetting how much we need a DM that should be first priority. I hope Wenger nose completing this Ashain deal is not enough to challenge for silverware we definitely need more signings

Word is that Ken Friar has remained with Zenit to tie up a deal while Gazidis is in Italy chasing up another target – a defensive midfielder perhaps?
