Arshavin: Eyes exit
Zenit St Petersburg coach Dick Advocaat has confirmed that Andrei Arshavin wants to leave the club.
The Russian star had a brilliant domestic campaign last season helping Zenit to the league title and Uefa Cup.
Arshavin only added to his reputation when he starred in Russia's final Euro 2008 group game - after being suspended for start of the tournament - against Sweden as scored the winner in the 2-0 triumph.
The 27-year-old is being tracked by clubs from Italy, Spain, France, Germany and England - with the likes of Newcastle, Manchester City, Everton and more recently Arsenal said to be interested.
Now Advocaat has confirmed that Arshavin want to move to one of Europe's biggest leagues.
"Andrei has told us that he wishes to change clubs," Advocaat told reporters on Friday.
"At present, in the way of offers, it is quiet.
"The situation may well change after the game against Holland for the national side."
