City May Scupper Arsenal's Andrei Arshavin Deal

City May Scupper Arsenal's Andrei Arshavin Deal

Google language translator


Manchester City may scupper Arsenal's proposed deal with Zenit Saint Petersburg and put an offer in for the 27-year-old striker.

Arsenal are thought to have tabled a £10million bid the Russian international, however according to the Sun, the offer was immediate dismissed. No new offers have arrived from the London club.

Zennit Saint Peterburg spokesman Alexei Petrov said...

'I can confirm that Zenit did get an official offer of about £10m from Arsenal for Andrei Arshavin. It was rejected as insufficient. No new offers have arrived from them since.'

By all accounts, Zenit are going to hold out for their £23million asking price.

With Manchester City struggling to find a regular goal scorer, should Mark Hughes go all out and scupper Arsenal's proposed one and only January signing.

Why would Man City have to go after the one player that Arsenal want to sign? That would be low, with the billions there are many players you can get, so they should move along and stop hating.

However Arshavin wants a club with Cjampions league staus and is more likely to move in the summer than now.

Yes Doody, they have a ceiling, which they broke for Fabregas and he is a far better player than Arshvin, I think the wages will be a problem, unless the lad is willing to take a pay cut or move to City who will pay his wages but no give him European football for a couple of seasons
