An exclusive Goal.com report states that Russian hotshot Andrei Arshavin is set to sign for a top club in either the Premier League, La Liga or the Italian Serie A in January.
Andrei Arshavin’s representative Dennis Lachter has been quoted as saying that his client would like to play in either England, Spain or Italy. But Lachter has refused to mention any names and has also discouraged any manipulation.
Dennis Lachter remarked, “We have not verified the situation just yet, but we know that there are several clubs in Spain, England and Italy who are all interested in Arshavin.
“I don’t want to comment on which clubs are interested because there has been plenty of speculation regarding the situation.
“The final match for Zenit in the Champions League could be his final accord with the club and this is significant for Andrei. He has won two titles in Europe as well as bronze in the Euros.
“He played really well against Real Madrid and he was man of the match, but I don’t think it’s right to comment about whether he will go.
“The key leagues for the player are the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga.
“I don’t think it’s the right way to promote the player by speculating about where he could end up, but we will have a clearer idea around the middle of December when the interested clubs decide to come forward if they are serious.
“It will be clearer in around a few weeks when the Champions League and UEFA Cup takes a break, and it will be much easier to understand where he will be going.”
Well, frankly it is nothing new, is it? Everyone knows that should Arshavin move from Zenit, and it is expected that he would move soon, then it should be either the Premier League, La Liga or the Italian Serie A. But sadly for the conspiracy theorists, Lachter didn’t mention any name. Maybe Lacter is a honourable guy.
