Arshavin Russia exit still on

Russian midfielder Andrei Arshavin could be on his way out of the club and returning to his homeland, according to The Telegraph.

Last night’s transfer deadline saw most transfer activity cease; however, the Russian deadline is not until 24th February, and both his former club Zenit St. Petersburg and Anzhi are thought to be showing an interest. Zenit are reported to be the Russian’s preferred option, but may not be as willing to meet Arsenal’s £7 million valuation as Anzhi, who are owned by billionaire Suleyman Kerimov.

Arshavin’s Arsenal career looks close to it’s conclusion, after he was booed by supporters upon replacing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United. He signed for Arsenal in 2009 for a fee of £15 million, and the club would ideally look to recoup as much of that as possible through any sale. In total, he has made 127 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 30 goals.
