Arshavin - A Gunner very soon...

Arshavin - A Gunner very soon...

Zenit St. Petersburg midfielder Andrei Arshavin may be Arsenal’s 1st transfer this January. The Russian playmaker has been linked with a move to Arsenal for quite some time now and that move might finally take place in the coming days according to his agent Dennis Lachter. According to an Italian Daily the skillful star of Euro 2008 will join Arsenal on a 5 year deal for £18m.

“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.”

So he will be a Gunner in the next few days! An official statement hasn’t come out yet possibly because of the final terms of the contract would be agreed upon right now. So Arsene Wenger might finally make a transfer that will please all the Arsenal fans! I am hopeful the guy will be able to adapt to the Premier League well and should start performing within a few matches. Lets hope 2009 continues this way for Arsenal and may we see more big name signings!
