Arshavin - May finallyyy be a Gunner soon

Arshavin - May finallyyy be a Gunner soon

Andrei Arshavin’s transfer to Arsenal now seems inevitable. The endless tranfer saga is finally drawing to an end according the player’s agent Dennis Lachter. Arsenal have been linked with the Russian star since December but the deal still hasn’t been done with Zenit having turned down a £10m bid from Arsenal. However, as it is shaping up there isn’t much interest in the Zenit forward from any other big clubs so the deal with Arsenal seems bound to happen. Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis has also been invited to St. Petersburg to meet Zenit officials to finalise the deal. Dennis Lachter said:

“The deal should go through this week. Andrei wants to go, Arsenal want him and Zenit accept they have to sell. It’s just a matter of sorting out the sums but the indication is it’ll happen soon, perhaps within days.”

So it seems good news is just round the corner. With Nasri and van Persie performing the way they are right now, Arshavin should forge a nice partnership with the two. I can’t wait to see him playing for Arsenal. I expect if the deal is done he will probably get the number 13 shirt…
