Arsenal transfer news: Zenit St Petersburg will sign Andrey Arshavin if he proves himself
Zenit St Petersburg are prepared to sign Arsenal’s forgotten man Andrey Arshavin on a permanent deal if he proves himself.
The 31-year-old, who scored three goals in nine starts for the Russian club, will discuss his future in London after Euro 2012.
“Everything depends on Arshavin. If Andrey is ready to stay in the team and go on the field as a player, we are ready to discuss it,” said Zenit chief executive Maxim Mitrofanov.
“Arshavin is part of our club but, with all due respect to him, he will only stay in the event that he proves himself useful as an active player. Not as a man making up the numbers.”
