Andrei Arshavin's agent has rubbished claims that Arsenal are in talks with Zenit St Petersburg over a possible deal.
Sky Sports suggested the UEFA Cup holders were ready to sell their prized asset to Arsene Wenger but the player's agent Dennis Lachter says the reports are nonsense.
Russian playmaker Arshavin wants to leave Zenit in order to further his career, with a number of clubs interested in the £20million rated star. Arshavin previously admitted he wanted a move to Spain but he hasn't closed the door on a move to the Premier League.
Reports claimed Arsenal and Zenit were in talks over a deal but Lachter says it's news to him.
He said: "People at Sky Sports had been trying to get an interview with me all day. After I refused they made the story up from their own imagination. I don't know where they got this from. If there is a bid, then it's one I don't know about."
Wenger admitted he wanted to sign a player of 'special class' last weekend, especially after the injury to Cesc Fabregas. With the Gunners captain out for a month, the Arsenal manager has stepped up his efforts to find a replacement.
But as far as Lachter is concerned, Arshavin has had no contact with the London club.
"If I knew what was going to happen with Andrei, I would be Nostradamus - I don't have that type of talent. If I did I wouldn't be a football agent," Lachter added.
Lachter 还附加道：“如果我能知道阿尔沙文的未来，我肯定是个占卜师----我没有这种天赋。如果我有我早就不敢足球经纪人了”。 作者: 廉价宝 时间: 2009-1-7 10:09
