Fulham open Arsenal talks for Arshavin

Fulham boss Martin Jol is chasing Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin.

The London Evening Standard says the Russian has struggled to find consistency with the Gunners but showed flashes of his old brilliance with his national side at Euro 2012.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger will hold talks with the player in the coming days with Jol ready to pounce if the mercurial forward decides to move on.

Arshavin is thought to want to stay in London, making Fulham favourites if he does decide to leave the Gunners. The only stumbling block will be his £80,000 a week wages.
