Andrei Arshavin is set to be offered a London lifeline this summer with Fulham looking to bring the Russian forward to Craven Cottage.
According to ‘Soviet Sport’, the West Londoners are ‘seriously’ considering a move for Arshavin who spent the end of last season on loan at his former club Zenit St Petersburg.
Arshavin’s family stayed in London during his loan spell and he said that he would return there to decide his future after Euro 2012. Speaking last month he told reporters, “After the Euros, I will study my future, think about it. And I would like to talk to Wenger before I make any decision.”
Funnily, if you consider such things funny, Arshavin ended the season with a title winners medal as Zenit topped the Russian league.
It’s clear that Arsenal are open to offers for him and now that he’s got used to not being allowed park wherever he wants and all the women drivers, the Fulham option might well suit him and us.
Arshavin would join fellow Russian Pavel Pogrebnyak at The Cottagers if the deal did go through.
