Arshavin to soften the blow?

Arshavin to soften the blow?

Andrei Arshavin has been linked with all the big boys this Summer but reports today are suggesting the slighter smaller boy with potential for a growth spurt, Tottenham, are in for the Russian star.

Zenit St Petersburg official Konstantin Sarsaniya was quoted in the Russian press regarding Tottenham’s interest in the player.

“With Tottenham we have contacts,”
“This English club is really interested in acquiring Andrei but, as I understand, €27 million (£21.5 million) is too high a price for them.
“For Spurs it is unacceptable. Tottenham are ready to pay in the region of €20 million (£15.9 million) for Arshavin.”

This is another deal I can’t really see coming off for a number of reasons.

Firstly he’s wanted by teams playing Champions League football.

Would he really want to come to a clubs that has just sold arguably their two best players (Keane and Berba are more or less out the door!)

I’ve seen no quotes from anyone at Tottenham regarding our interest in Arshavin.

While there is no doubting his talent he is over priced and over hyped on the back of a good season and Euro 2008.

  1. You are basically swaping this mug for Berbatov, great deal, not.

    Not that I can see him going to your mob anyway.

  2. I knew that Spurs would be linked with him sooner or later.

    It seems the big teams of Europe have turned a blank to him and next week we will hear of “his dream” to wear the Spurs shirt!

    Good player but over priced.

  3. I agree about the dream Wrighty, a lot of these players have the dream depending on who their agent has currently got the best deal with.
