Zenit St Petersburg playmaker Andrei Arshavin has travelled to London ahead of his proposed move to Arsenal.

Sky Sports News understands Arshavin travelled by private jet from St Petersburg on Sunday night and is now waiting for both clubs to agree a fee before he undergoes a medical.

It is understood Arshavin did not want to miss out on a transfer to the Emirates Stadium for logistical reasons and decided to travel to London as a precaution in case a deal is agreed on Monday.

Zenit had previously said there was no change in developments after Arshavin left the club's training camp in Dubai on Saturday.

Arsenal and Zenit have yet to agree a deal but Arshavin's movements indicate a confidence that he expects a deal to be done in this transfer window.
