The ever-reliable Sky Sports News were accused of being quite the opposite last night as Andrei Arshavin’s shit-stirring agent rubbished rumours that the Russian is on his way to Arsenal.
According to Dennis Lachter, the man who said his client was closing in on a move to north London, Gunners officials have had no contact with either Zenit St Petersberg or Lachter himself.
This news comes as SSN (Sky Sports News), exclusively revealed that Zenit were in talks with Arsene Wenger’s side and that a transfer was close to be being agreed.
Lachter though, rebuffed the rumours in the Russian press:
“People at Sky Sports had been trying to get an interview with me all day. After I refused they made the story up from their own imagination. I don’t know where they got this from. If there is a bid, then it’s one I don’t know about.”
You can make your own mind up on whether or not Lahcter is lying. It seems strange that Zenit’s managing director, Maxim Mitrofanov is saying one thing while Arshavin’s representive, Lachter is saying the complete opposite.
Whilst curiously trawling through today’s newspapers, one quote became evident from Arshavin. He said that he ‘hoped that the two clubs [Zenit & Arsenal] could come to an agreement’. Not only that, he was also shown around the Gunners Hertfordshire-based London Colney training ground.
