Zenit door open to Arshavin

Arshavin joined Arsenal for a club record £15million fee in

2009 but has struggled to hit top form this season, prompting talk

of an Emirates exit in the summer. And one way out, should Gunners

boss Arsene Wenger decide the Russia international is surplus to

requirements, could be his former club. “Zenit’s doors are always

open for Andrey,” Zenit’s sporting director Igor Korneev told

Talksport. “If his situation at Arsenal does not improve and he’s

not comfortable in London, we can study this issue in time for next

season.”
