Manchester City will join Tottenham and Everton in the race to sign the UEFA Cup champion Andrei Arshavin.
Manchester City owner, Thaksin Shinawatra, is said to be a keen admirer of the Russian playmaker’s talents, and has been very impressed with the player’s performances in the UEFA Cup, who scored 11 goals in his 25 matches. The club is set to make a Ã‚Â£11million bid for the Zenit St Petersburg star, as they look to reshape their squad for next season.
Due to the recent turmoil at Manchester City, that have caused many fans to be upset with the Thai owner, Thaksin wants to bring in a big signing as soon as possible to ease the pressure against him. According to reports, talks with Arshavin’s agents have already begun.
In order to finance the deal, Man City may offload defender Richard Dunne and midfielder Stephen Ireland, with Roy Keane’s Sunderland leading the chase for both.
