Arshavin urged to quit Arsenal for Reading

Andrei Arshavin has been urged to leave Arsenal for a fresh start at Reading by his international colleague and Royals centre-forward Pavel Pogrebnyak, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The two previously played together in Russia and Zenit St. Petersburg, while Russian businessman Anton Zingarevich, an investor in the newly-promoted Premier League club, is also from St. Petersburg and is said to be keen to bring Arshavin to the Madejski Stadium once the transfer window opens in January.

Arshavin has fallen out of favour under Arsene Wenger and spent the latter half of last season on loan at his former club, while the new campaign has failed to offer Arshavin much first team action. The 31-year-old has made only eight appearances in all competitions for the Gunners, scoring once in the Capital One Cup against Coventry City.

Arshavin also featured in the next round of the same competition, the epic encounter between Reading and Arsenal that ended 7-5 to Wenger’s team, despite Reading having taken a four-goal lead in the first-half.

Pogrebnyak said: “It's Arshavin who has to make the decision. Anton Zingarevich knows him well enough without listening to my opinion, as he is from St Petersburg. Andrei is a master and there is no doubt that it would be great to see him at Reading.
