Will Arshavin move this time?

Posted on | January 20, 2009 | 2 Comments

After winning Uefa Cup with Zenit and reaching the European semifinals with Russia last season, Arshavin was one one the most hunted players.



Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester City, Inter and other big clubs from Europe were interested in signing the Russian star but the asking price was considered too much for a player that never played abroad.

Arsenal are still interested and prepared to make a move for the player if Zenit will accept to lower their demands. Zenit are asking £20 milion but would accept even 17-18 million.

If clubs like Manchester City, Real Madrid, Manchester are spending big sums of money on players they want, Wenger maintain the same transfer policy at Arsenal, unwilling to spent substantial sums.

Arsenal is willing to give up at their promising forward Bendtner in order to add 5-6 million more to those 12 offered before.

Arshavin, which is 27 years old now, is desperate to move to a bigger team and know that this is the right time for it.

However if Arsenal and Zenit will not reach to an agreement Inter and Manchester City could also be a destination for him.

Anyway whatever the destination will be, there are fears that Arshavin would not adapt to the style and conditions in the new league. Considering that he is already 27 and he played the whole life only in his country £20 million might be too high risk for any team.
