Barcelona refuses to give up on landing Zenit St Petersburg attacker Andrei Arshavin.

Despite Zenit's massive asking price for the Russian international, El Mundo Deportivo says Arshavin remains Barca's priority midfield target - ahead of Valencia's David Silva.

Barca are willing to play a waiting game with Zenit, well aware that Arshavin is desperate to make a move to the Nou Camp before the August 31 transfer deadline.
