Lazio target Arsenal’s Arshavin

Andrei Arshavin could be set for a permanent move away from Arsenal as Serie A side Lazio have been linked with the Russia captain, ClubCall has reported.

Arshavin is currently on loan at his former club Zenit St. Petersburg after falling out of favour under Arsene Wenger. Wenger is said to be keen to remove the fringe players from his squad to make way for new faces, with Arshavin falling firmly into that category.

Lazio could give Arshavin the opportunity of a permanent escape route a year before his Arsenal contract ends. Wenger is also said to be willing to sell the 31-year-old for substantially less than the £15m paid to Zenit for him in 2009.

The Italian outfit ended the season in fourth place, two points adrift of Udinese in third, the final Champions League place awarded to Serie A. Despite their relatively successful season Lazio will begin the next campaign under the new management of Vladimir Petkovic following the resignation of Edy Reja.
