The Arsenal winger Andrei Arshavin has been widely tipped to leave Arsenal at the end of this season. His agent Dimitri Seluk has said that his next destination is most likely to be the Premier league club Fulham.
Martin Jol enquired about the services of the Russian winger during the January transfer window, but the club was unable to complete that deal to bring the former Zenit St Petersburg man to Craven Cottage. According to the statement released by Dimitri Seluk, Fulham can be expected to make another move for the player in the summer.
Arshavin has fallen out of favour at Arsenal, and he has made just seven appearances this season. The 31-year-old was loaned to Russia last season, but he has not yet returned to regular first team action this season, and there are long odds on him ever re-appearing according to Unibet, who are currently offering a special 3 Strikes Bet on him.
The £ 15 million signing has been unable to get regular game time even with the several injuries affecting Arsene Wenger’s selection. Seluk has hinted that his client wants to remain in London. Reading were also interested in his services during January, but he is now thought to favour a move to Fulham. Arsenal cannot expect more than a few million pounds back in transfer fees due to the lack of first-team action for the player.
“Top English clubs won’t take him. And considering the fact that he doesn’t want to leave London, the next club for Arshavin will be Fulham or something like that,” said Seluk. This has been an extremely difficult season for Arsenal, as they are in danger of failing to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League for the first time in 15 years. The club are currently fifth in the Premier league table with five points separating them from the top four positions. There are only 10 matches remaining in the season.
