What do we know for sure?
Today a source was at the Zenit pre-season training camp in Dubai and asked Zenit Manager Dick Advocaat if it would be ok to take some photos of Arshavin training, Advocaat is understood to have said “no,as he is not with the team”,and when asked about his whereabouts? Advocaat apparently said “I don’t care,He is no longer my player”.
At the same time a SSN reporter said that today Arsenal were granted a work permit for Arshavin, this was later denied by Arsenal manager Wenger.
However a short time later Wenger said the deal would HAVE to be done before the West Ham game. Today on Arsenal.com Wenger has given his reasons to why he wants to bring Arshavin to the club LINK
Add to that the rumor that Arshavin was on the 20:00hrs flight from Dubai to London Heathrow today in order to have a medical tomorrow morning and sign his £70,000 contract. All being well WE believe that Arshavin will be unveiled on the pitch tomorrow at Half time or just before kick off and will be given the number 23 shirt.
Maybe then we can put this marathon saga behind us and get on with football…..
