Andrei Arshavin to revive an adolescent Arsenal?

08-andrei-arshavinA piece of news such as this comes as no surprise to the transfer market junkie, since Andrei Arshavin has been linked to the Gunners time and time again recently. Now, it seems that a move is finally on the cards.

Reports on The Mirror state that the Russian is currently in London to mark the conclusion of a transfer move that could have the fans at Emirates sighing in relief.

With an injury hit squad that is still in its teens and a fourth place looking gloomy due to Aston Villa, this could potentially be one of the best things that could happen to the North London club this season.

Zenit St. Petersburg initially valued the player at a whopping £20 million, but the price has depreciated considerably since Arshavin made no secret of the fact that the he intends to leave the Petrovsky Stadium as soon as possible. It is now rumoured that Arsene Wenger is going to seal the deal for half the price that the Russians demanded initially.

The 27-year-old’s versatility will enable Arsenal to use him as a stopgap player until they find the form that they are looking for. Apart from his tendency to create and score, his winging and playmaking abilities set him a class apart from most players we see these days.

While Zenit has confirmed that talks are being held for the transfer of their prized player, the finalization of the deal is supposed to conclude in the next ten days.
