Andrei Arshavin’s market value has exploded as the player enjoyed a relatively good Euro 2008 campaign. Zenit St. Petersburg now want Ã‚Â£24 million for their player and it was thought that no club would pay that amount for a 27 year old winger. However Zenit have recently rejected a Ã‚Â£19 million bid and the player’s agent is optimistic that a deal can be struck, according to Setanta Sports.
Ã¢â‚¬ÂBarcelona failed with a Ã‚Â£12m bid and now an English club have had a Ã‚Â£19m offer rejected by Zenit,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Dennis Lachter, as reported by Setanta Sports.
Ã¢â‚¬ÂZenit want Ã‚Â£24m, so clubs who want to sign Andrei will have to get closer to that figure.
Ã¢â‚¬ÂThere are clubs interested in Andrei who are trying to sell players first. The figure is not easy to reach, but the transfer activity is beginning to happen and I am optimistic he will join a big club.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The same report goes on to speculate that the club who could make an offer closer to the Ã‚Â£24 million evaluation of the player is Arsenal, who are waiting on the sale of Alexander Hleb.
