Arshavin move could be completed in next ten days

Andrei Arshavin’s proposed move to Arsenal could happen next week after his parent club Zenit St Petersberg admitted that they are in talks with the Gunners.

27-year-old midfielder-come-forward Arshavin has attracted an array of admiring clubs on the strength of two spectacular Euro 2008 performances against Sweden and the Netherlands, and it’s Arsenal who are in the front seat to sign him.

According to the reliable Sky Sports News channel, Arsenal have bid considerably lower than Zenit’s valuation of Arshavin – the Russian’s remain adamant that they can push through a deal with Arsene Wenger’s side this month.

Gooner Talk told you about Arshavin’s agent Dennis Lachter, last week, and how confident he was that Arshavin would be an Arsenal player before the end of January.

We also revealed an Arsene Wenger interview in which the French tactician Wenger refused to say whether or not Arshavin could be an Arsenal player, but replied with a cheeky smile and told the fans to ‘be patient’ – typical of the coy Alsatian.

One thing’s for sure, Andrei Arshavin is looking more and more likely an Arsenal player as the days go on.

only the fee has to be agreed but I think as you wrote above only a matter of days and I am sure new deals for RVP and Theo coming soon too. They have to work on new transfers now it is time for new deals.

So i guess it true we do want him. Just wait signing of the season if he can adapt quickly.

Kranjcar isn’t as good as Traore who is on loan from us at the moment, really hjope this Arshavin talk is true – he is a world class player but not only that it will also really piss off the spuds,

This is the kind of news I’ve been waiting for! I just hope we don’t deny it in the next few hours to add another dip in this transfer rollercoaster!

Cheers feller.

Yep, Zenit are very confident that the deal will be completed soon, so it looks like a matter of days rather than weeks.

we should now sell gallas and get a good center half in and give the no.10 to arshavin…..

more likely wenger will be on arsenal.com 2moro saying he is not interested in arshavin.

well no, is says in the article that it will be ten days or more, so don’t expect anything soon.

Tottenham got DEFOE??? That’s unclassy buying a player that left the club.

I read very much article about Arshavin and Arsenal, so I think he will come. The transfer fee will be the key, because Arsenal don’t want to spend 20 million pound on a player. But the money is very improtant for the Zenit as well, because he won’t get anything in the future. What do you think?

Any idea of the other rumour that Upson is going Villa and Laursen to the Arsenal? Why would Villa want 5 centre halves?

Arshavin, Walcott, Rosicky, Nasri…top draw wingers.

Dave

Yes. Laursen and Bullard to Arsenal, according to Arseblog.

Dave, Eboue isn’t as bad as everyone makes out. He is actually very good.

Dave

Agreed. Eboue just needs to find some consistency. Arshavin almost in the bag, I hope we retain Kolo, get a winger and a dm. Maybe sell Bendtner in the process.

yes iJemz you are right he is goint to be good again like the old days. And cant imagine he will leave soon

arsenal4ever

it is just positive thinking but I think we should wait about Bendtner until the end of this season. If he still not scoring enough goals we have Jay Simpson which is a natural born scorer.

iJemz

And I’m not to sure on Jay Simpson, I mean his goals where not exactly “hard”, Vela laid one on a plate for him and all he had to do was tap it in and the goal before that was all about Wilshere’s lovely through ball.

Dave

Well iJemz, i do hope Simpson will grab a hat-trick against Aston Villa this week. 🙂

just wait and be patient how is loan spell will work. He is the first one how made a hattrick at emirates, yes it was only for the youth but a hattrick is not as easy it seemed to be. If Wenger trust in him for giving a new contract I will trust too. We will see what time brings!

Jay has the nose for goals and he will show it on his loan at WBO

i hope this is true about Arshavin, he is a fantastic player, a matchwinner, which we so badly need….now lets try to hang on to Kolo, and is there any truth in Denilson to Bolton? i hope not, he is the closest thing we have to a holding midfielder, and has loads of potential

Please make this true. We need more creativity to go alongside Alex Song…

Seriously Arshavin would be great in an Arsenal shirt. What is this about Bullard? That would be a fantastic signing. He is truly the pest in midfield that Flamini played so well last year.

really excited about arshavin coming to arsenal..although im still not getting hopes up too high until its confirmed on arsenal.com. All we need now is a DM, but what would i know compared with mr wenger?, he will sign who he feels is right for the arsenal

All this about denilson is bullshit what else could he have dreamed of a place in the first team of one of the most promising teams in the world an opportunity to play in the champions league if i were denilson why on earth will i want to go to Bolton!

Remember how long Nasri trf took, we have to still agree personal terms as well. Think 10 days is realistic. Does not look like anyone else is after him otherwise we would have had an agonising wait

Do we really need another midfielder after arshavin ?

T.U.G.Z

This is easy for Arsene, just offer 15million + Alex Song and the deals done.

Oh and i think if Toure wants to go , let him. no use in keeping a player who doesn’t want to be there. With Djourou playing like he is he wont be missed, trust me, plus Toure is a midget compared to Djourou lol.

Arshavin is a fantastic bit of business by Wenger.

We’ll end up selling Toure to Man City and Wenger will buy Upson or Hangerland from Fulham and then either get Parker or Bullard for DM

We’ll get 3 signings this window. Up the arse!

And we have Rosicky, Eduardo, Theo all coming back February

The Brain

As far as I know Arshavin would be willing to take a pay cut though I think the terms would be similar to Zenit.
The only stumbling block seems the price which Arsenal and Zenit may not agree on in the end. Hope it goes well but Zenit are not in need of money. Time for Arshavin to throw another one of his strops!

Wenger never signed a DM last summer but think about who we missed out all those years ago; Micheal Carrick. Vieira decided to stay but left a year later.

iJemz
11 years ago

Toure ain’t bad either, he doesn’t get to many matches to prove he is good. And when he does get matches he probably over works himself just to prove he is fit for the starting 11, therefore making plenty of mistakes because he is over worked. Just my opinion, if anyone disagrees I’m fine with that just don’t argue with me.

The talks were confirmed by Russian Television two days ago. The squabble is over the fee.

And there is no doubt that Arsene wants an English player as well. I have realised and I think he has too, that British players are more reliable and loyal. They can also deal with the hustle and bustle of the EPL, which some of the Arsenal players are struggling with, Denilson being a case in point.

BillyGallas

A few things.

Denilson to Bolton is the old former Real Betis Denilson. NOT OURS.

Stop knocking Eboue. He is a crucial member of the squad. He is a very good player.

Arshavin if he comes will offer sooo much. Top quality and he has lots to prove to Europe.

The league is not over. Utd vs. Chelsea this weekend. Liverpool yet to have a slump.

Keep the Faith. 🙂

here again some pessimists but I think Wenger wants him really much so we will get him at around 15-17 mill.
