Arshavin Allowed to Leave Zenit

Changing their summer obstinacy, Zenit St. Petersburg will allow Andrei Arshavin to leave the club in the January transfer window.

“It will be better both for our club and for the player,” Zenit manager Dick Advocaat said.  “We had good time together and it’s time to part with him.”

Tottenham is Arshavin’s most likely destination.  The club have coveted the Russian captain since last year.  The 27-year-old agreed personal terms with the club last summer, however the Spurs and Zenit remained £8.5 million apart on his transfer price.

A deal now would probably be closer to Spurs’ £12.5m evaluation.  He would resolve Tottenham’s shortage of diminutive second strikers.

At that price Arshavin could also interest Chelsea, who are looking for a striker.
