Tottenham have finally caved in to Zenit’s demands for Russia’s version of David Beckham, according to The Mirror. Zenit are holding out for a transfer fee of about Ã‚Â£19 million for their star player and now it looks like they are going to get it.
Arshavin’s departure is likely to cause much grief in his home-land, but London should welcome the arrival of a very spectacular player, according to Zenit’s captain, Anatoli Tymoschuk.
“He will enjoy London because the fans will love him. He will be the most spectacular player they’ve seen in England for a long time,” claims Tymoschuk, as reported by The Mirror.
Arshavin’s move would strengthen Tottenham’s attacking department after Robbie Keane’s departure to Liverpool this summer and Dimitar Berbatov’s potential move to Old Trafford might have weakened it severely.
