Reports: Arshavin's Agent 'confirms' Arsenal move

Russia hotshot Andrei Arshavin will be an Arsenal player in the coming days, according to his agent Dennis Lachter.

Italian daily TuttoMercato says 27-year-old Arshavin will sign a 5-year deal at the Emirates with Zenit pocketing £18m from the transfer fee.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who is a known admirer of the highly-rated star, beat off competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham and Liverpool.

Arshavin’s representitive Dennis Lachter commented on the transfer, saying:

“Andrei is rated by Wenger who wanted him to sign [for Arsenal] last summer. This transfer would please everyone but we must wait a few days for confirmation.”

French tactician Wenger refused to say whether or not Arshavin could be an Arsenal player earlier last week, but replied with a cheeky smile – typical of the coy Alsatian.
