Zenit Director: "We're waiting for Arsenal response"

arshavin1

Zenit St Petersberg director Maxim Mitrofanov revealed that talks are still progressing with Arsenal over the transfer of Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin.

The 27-year-old is closing in on his ideal move to the Gunners after several weeks of firm interest from the north London giants. However, Zenit official Mitrofanov admitted that Arsenal are yet to ‘conclude the transfer’

Speaking to Radio Zenit, the official radio station of the Russian giants, Mitrofanov said:

“We are still waiting for an official response Arsenal.

While there is no news [at the moment], we do realise the position of Arsenal is extremely important.

Arsène Wenger said that he has different feelings about the possibility of the deal, but nevertheless, he looked forward to its conclusion.

We need to understand how Arsenal would like to conclude this transfer.”

French tactician Arsene Wenger said last night in his post-match press conference following the 1-1 draw over Everton, that the deal to bring midfielder Andrei Arshavin to the Emirates Stadium is ’90 per cent completed’.

Earlier this afternoon, Zenit head coach Dick Advocaat refused to get drawn in on the ‘Arshavin-saga’ admitting that he’s “fed up” with the longevity of the transfer.

A deal will certainly need to happen sooner rather than later. With just 4 days left until the closure of the transfer window, late signings could prove crucial to the rest of Arsenal’s season.

    It will be very interesting. According the pictures Arshavin was training with Zenit today, so the gossip about a strike via goal.com is not true – I think. But he must travel to London at this weekend to get a deal from Arsenal. I hope he will join us, but I think it won’t be tomorrow but on Monday.

    No, Zenit has realized that they would lose a big sum so they will sell him either for us or for else. But we could sign the papers in the last minutes and he could win some millions, just I’d prefer a deal with Arshavin.

  13. GMR says:

    This deal looks too complicated & miles from completion. Arshavin is still training with Zenit in Dubai (he’s in their latest training pics taken today on their official site). I don’t really know what to believe as that comment above seems to suggest Wenger is having second thoughts about the whole deal, thats if we were actually serious in the first place. I have an awful feeling that come the 2nd Feb we’ll be left disappointed again.

    “We are not close to sign anyone.”

    The usual and pathetic sentence after the match. After that he changed his mind. This is the 10%. :D

  74. Gooner Chris says:

    Ron, that’s wrong.

    From Arsenal Mania:

    He won’t need a work permit on deadline day. The paper work can be sorted after the window is closed, as long as a deal is struck before hand. If he failed to get a work permit then the deal would either be cancelled or he would be loaned out like Vela. Not that he wouldn’t get a work permit since he is an important player for his National Team and would figure as a key player for us. And obviously we wouldn’t loan him out if he didn’t get said work permit.”

    Is it me or has our passing been awful and our touches. Last year we were under pressure we could hold onto the ball hleb was brilliant at that so was rosicky flamini and fabregas. Against Everton we couldnt hold onto the ball or use the ball more. We kept giving the ball away. We need a carrick type player just to hold onto the ball.

    ReplyReply
  80. john says:

    The reason why we looked exposed was our full backs keeping bombing on to the oppositions area and when song or denilson give the ball away, straight away the opposition of a head start and can go wide and whip crosses in. Thats why we need two wingers who can take people on instead of relying on passing and full backs

    we are currently not creative enough ….but once arshavin signs hopefully…..and all injured players back then we will have a lot of flair and creativity.but we do need a player who can sit ahead of the back four and protect them…which flamini did brilliantly last yr..hope wenger signs a defensive midfielder

    I understand, so if he didn’t get his work permit he wouldn’t play? But if he signed him and he would get his permit a week later, could he play?
    That’s interesting question, but I think it isn’t neccesary to done the Zenit-deal, we should talk to Arshavin, and if it’s okay, then should we pay the 15m for Zenit.

    if wenger really think that we have a good squad then he is going insane ! i can’t believe that our main goal every season now is the 4th place ! we are 5 points behind villa ! and we have 3 games against the big 4 in the last 6 games !

    loosing such a quality player ! and probably better than all wingers we have , is nothing less than stupidity , we need to act fast

    we are n danger of loosing 40 million pounds ( if we didn’t make it to the CL next year ) , we are in danger of loosing our best player for not showing ambition ! the fans aren’t renewing their season tickets , we are in danger of loosing our dignity and pride !

    arshavin is just the player we need ive watched him many times on you tube and he is such a world class player,

    he can score goals, he has very goob ball control, he has a good first touch, he is very quick, he can create goals for his team mates and he his very good at passing with good vision and awareness of where the players are around him,

    sounds good to me!!!!!

    Agree Gooner112 Veloso is the type of DM we need… like most frustrated fans.. the potential AA signing has been the only obvious transfer rumour circulated throughout the window to date and so far Bolton & Man City have shown an interest in this player who Sporting Lisbon are willing to let go off for a mere 12 million which could be a steal for a player of that much quality! It would not surprise me if Arsenal were silently interested in him… And like Gooner Chris says if Zenit allow AA to speak to us then it could be a formality but AW suggests that they need to keep to their word before the green light can be given.. But obviously time is running out fast!!

    e fate of Arshavina may decide today

    Negotiations between the “Zenith” and “Arsenal” about a possible move to the London club 28-year-old attacking team Russia Andrei Arshavina lasted deep into the night from Thursday to Friday. A final decision has not yet been taken, but it could be followed today, said the correspondent “SE” Vyacheslav Korotki

    Pete, yea i have seen him play, quite a bit actually. Fair enough he’s having an average year for his standards. But thats why we have a chance of getting him, thats why the Likes of Bolton are interested and not Man U or Barca! He’s a very good player with great technical abilities and by the sounds of it a very reasonable price, whats not to like?? But the main thing is that he is alot better than what we have in CM now!

    True… players form quickly goes out of the window when they wanna move on and play somewhere else! AA hasn’t lifted his game since last summer because he wants to play at a higher level… a double whammy signing could be on the cards.. then again AW’s purse strings are often tightened so we may be kept guessing for a while longer yet but it makes sense for him not to let a bargain go begging!

    i don’t think this deal is goin to happen,all these mess about arshavin is basically done to distract people attention from other demanded transfers.there was a huge demand to sign a central midfielder and a center at arsenal but linking themself with big name like arshavin wenger and arsenal board has distracted fans attention from there.
    i think we need to sell our club to a foreign owner there is too much corruption in our board.where the hell is money going,avg salary of our players are so weak compare to others,we have spend nothing is last 6-7 years, are u even worst than newcastle who have been spending huge in last 10 years, debt for stadium is just a excuse to hide there corruption.players like vieira,henry,flamini,hleb all left us simply because they know about our corrupt board.

    It’s all about value for money with the Arsenal board but sometimes I feel that the extra expense might be worth while on certain players who we’ve missed out on in the past… Any signing is a gamble but AA can not be the same mistake like Reyes was.. the player was found out far too quickly and was mentality weak… one thing’s for sure is that the Russian mentality is not weak and Arshavin could be our shining star of the future!

    No chris. Simply his stock should never have been so high in the first place.

    People who think that there will be another signing along with Arshavin are deluded. I doubt it would take 1 month to sign another player as well as Arshavin.

    People also need to realise that there are hardly any decent defensive midfielders on the market right now, so it makes sense to wait until the summer to re-assess the situation.

    The fact is that Wenger is trying to sign the best player who is available on the market at the moment.

    Who are these people that keep saying that Arsenal are trying to con the fans into thinking we are out in Russia as part of a propaganda scam. What planet are you on??? We are clearly trying to sign him, but it’s obviously a difficult deal, especially when we’ve got a budget to stick to. Also, those fans who keep saying we are soooooo rich. WAKE UP!! We may have one of the biggest sports revenues but it costs money to build a world class stadium and it doesn’t mean all that cash can go on the fun things in football. By the time all these other prem clubs build they’re new stadiums like they say they’re going to and realise the financial constrictions it brings, we will be in a fantastic positon with no debt. Stop Wenger bashing!! He has an economics degree. You don’t.

    Nothing is conclusive right now. I don’t think Wenger will bring Arshavin this month or in the summer. Why? Because he has high hopes on Diaby & Eboue to be Arsenal’s revelation this season.
    Look, if Wenger can turn a mediocre player like Flamini into a decent midfielder, then I’m sure he as no problem bringing out the “best” from those two(basically the worst players in Arsenal’s history)

    Seems to me right now, Villa is the new Arsenal, mixing youth and experience – in the right way.

    I’m sure Van Persie and Fabregas will leave in the summer if Wenger continues to playing mediocre players week in week out.

    If either party arent willing at this stage to ring each other but are expecting the other to ring what hope is there?!

    We supposedly chase a player for the whole window, make no other bids for other players and wont pay the extra £3M to conclude the deal – it feels as if we have been strung along again.

    The Directors wont be smiling when they see the lack of take up of the Corporate and Club level seats when the CL place isnt in anyway guaranteed (I was told the renewals have to be confirmed before this season ends?).

    Arshavin wont guarantee us the 4th spot but he would generate interest in getting the club level/corporate renewals.

    Striker “Zenit Andrei Arshavin to move to the English Arsenal willing to pay 2.5 million euros” Zenit “for early termination of its multi-year contract with the club from St. Petersburg, the” Soviet sport “.

    According to the publication, from the environment footballer, “Arshavin ready to compromise with piterskim Club – forward is likely to return 2.5 million euro prize for the signature of long-term contract, as would” Zenith. ”

    Earlier, Arsenal offered “Zenith” for forward 12 million euros and peterburzhskogo Book Club was ready to release a player for 15 million euros. However, the “Zenith” was ready to compromise if Arshavin will return the club 2.5 million euros – half of the bonus amounts previously received player of the conclusion of a long-term, four-year contract, the duration of which ends at the end of 2010.

    Transfer window to Europe, during which players can make the transition from club to club, rose 2 February. In the event that Arshavin before that date will not reach a compromise solution to the “Zenith”, an attacker can go to any European club only in the summer of this year.

Dutch star van Persie has expressed his dismay that Arsene Wenger is not strengthening a squad struck by injuries and loss of form during the current transfer window.

    Reports in France are that Liverpool and Arsenal are still after Sofiane Feghouli the highly rated French youngster.

    Any deal though will go through in summer and now this January unless either club wants to pay three times his valuation.

    At just 19 he is seen as a player with an exciting future ahead of him and a fee of €10 million is about right but to ward off suitors right now they are demanding €30 million.

    This was the case last week, but by all accounts Arsenal have upped their bid to €13.5 million in the hope that his side Grenoble will see sense and cash in now.

    But it is unlikely that Grenoble will accept that bid right now and discussions are still ongoing.

    Any deal is not completely dead yet though and both Arsenal and Liverpool do have representatives in France according to the French press.

    With 3 days to go in the transfer window this story may still have some legs.

    A deal between the London club and Zenit St.Petersburg had stalled after personal terms with Arshavin could not be agreed. However, sources in Russia now claim the player has agreed to receiving £2.5m-per-year, as opposed to the originally requested £3.5m, freeing up Arsenal to pay Zenit £15m, a figure that should see the transfer go through before the close of the current transfer window.

    Sky Sports News has reported that Arshavin has already been granted a work permit to play in England.Arsenal’s long-running pursuit of Andrie Arshavin appears to be reaching a successful conclusion after the Russian forward reduced his wage demands.

    Off from football365.com following Arsenes press conference (although they have got the deadline timing wrong as its 5pm and not midnight!):-

    Asked if Arsenal had agreed a fee with Zenit, Wenger declared: “No, and we have not applied for a work permit yet for Arshavin or anybody else.

    “Whether we are close or not has little meaning – it does not matter how close you are, what is important is that you agree. At the moment, we have no agreement with anybody for any transfer.

    “We are always confident, we try our best and respect our budget. “If we can find an agreement, we will do it, if we cannot we will not overspend what we have planned to do.”

    Wenger, though, indicated there could yet be movement ahead of the midnight deadline on Monday.

    The Arsenal manager added: “These kind of stories sometimes develop in the last minute on the final day of the transfer window. It is very difficult to predict.

    “I can only give you the way we think on our side. I cannot give you what other people think.”

    Arshavin ‘granted work permit’ for move to Arsenal as he agrees to help fund £15m move

    Andrei Arshavin is on the verge of signing for Arsenal after reportedly being granted a work permit for his transfer from Zenit St Petersburg.
    The Russia star still has a number of hurdles to pass before completing the deal in time for Monday’s 5pm deadline, but talks progressed in the last 48 hours and the 27-year-old is set to fly to London to complete the move.
    Talks between the two clubs continued late into last night and there was a breakthrough with Arshavin understood to have agreed to return half of a loyalty bonus to Zenit at a cost of £2.35million.
    Arsenal bound: Andrei Arshavin is on the verge of signing for the Gunners
    The cash relates to a 5m euros payment he accepted when signing a four-year deal in 2006. The Russian side will consider that as part of the transfer fee, with the Gunners set to pay about £15m if they can agree personal terms with the player.
    Arsenal will receive about the same fee from the sale of defender Kolo Toure to Manchester City today.

    If Arshavin is flying on a commercial flight I’m sure SSN would be getting tons of pictures from people on the airport that would recognize him. A private airplane is not that expensive to rent actually so for a high earning man on a hurry like him, that will for sure be his choice. I’m still hopeful he will sign though.

    Arsenal put in an opening bid of £12m , contrary to what Arsene Wenger would like us to believe, the Arshavin deal is considered by the Russian media as already done.

    In fact his medical has been arranged to take place in London in the next few days when the player is expected to join his new team mates.

    Again contrary to what Wenger would have us believe the club is getting the papers ready for a work permit application to the Home office.

    This has to be done in time for Arshavin to have a chance to play as soon as possible. It cannot yet be officially lodged as the signed transfer papers have to be part of the documents to be submitted.

    It is reported that Arshavin has finally accepted to return half the amount of €5m he received from Zenit as his signing on fee for extending his contract with the club in 2006 for another four years.

    It was agreed then that the player will return a part of that amount in accordance with the number of years he would have served of his four year contract.

    The transfer fee appears to be £15m with Arshavin putting up the other £2.5m.

    i’ve read too many posts over the past week of every1 here claiming they have received messages from Latcher yet none of what that has been said in the text messages has come true..

    so stop it now guys. we’ll sign him for sure. if we were not going to get him, after so much hysteria over the past few weeks and the fact that this transfer has become the biggest joke in football, Wenger would have finally said that no not happening, but still he hasnt denied it..

    How will he survive having to be picked up from training by his mummy after training every day without the prospect of playing at the weekend?
    A quote from his second cousin who was at his mummy’s house when the hero returned on saturday evening said “Poor ryan was devastated, his mummy thinks some warm coco and cookies should perk him right up”.
