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.
