Arsenal boosted by Dzagoev claims

CSKA Moscow playmaker Alan Dzagoev has admitted he could leave Russia after Euro 2012, which will be promising for Arsenal, who are heavily interested Metro reports.

Dzagoev has shot into the spotlight with three goals in the opening two games for Russia, as they look to progress to the quarter-finals in the easiest group of the tournament. Russia look set to make it through their group and give Dzagoev the chance to impress against much more difficult opposition. Arsenal are looking keenly at the 21 year old, as they attempt to build a squad to convince captain Robin van Persie to sign a new contract.

Arsene Wenger has already signed Lukas Podolski from Cologne and wants to add more attacking flair with the addition of Dzagoev. CSKA may be resigned to the fact that Dzagoev is leaving in the summer, after the 21 year old indicated that he is looking to test himself in the bigger European leagues. Wenger is looking to move quickly for the highly-rated Russian, who is out of contract at the end of 2012, and may be able to sign Dzagoev for a cheaper deal at around £10m.

The Russian has has spoken about his future, stating: “It is true that I am willing to try myself in other clubs, in another league in Europe. I will think about it after the tournament. I set myself high standards and I do not think I have played two good games yet.”
