Zenit St Petersburg have told Sky Sports News that talks are taking place with Arsenal regarding a deal for Andrei Arshavin.
By going public about the deal before a price has been agreed and saying the deal is 10 days to 2weeks Zenit are merely trying to temp other clubs to enter the bidding.
Zenit want top money for the player and Arsenal are trying to sign him on the cheap.By telling the world that Arsenal are in talks all of the big boys will now try and sign him from under Wengers nose.
Very clear from Zenit and this will no doubt piss Arsenal and Wenger off.I dont know what takes Arsenal so long to tie up a transfer deal. It seems to go on and on for weeks before its completed.
I doubt this deal will happen.
