Spurs, Arsenal chasing Zenit star Arshavin

Russia striker Andrei Arshavin has been linked with a move to Tottenham or Arsenal after his agent confirmed he is attracting interest from a trio of western European clubs.

The 26-year-old is one of the country's brightest talents and is thought to be keen to leave reigning Premier Liga champions Zenit for a new challenge.

"We have three offers for Arshavin. All three are from strong European teams", Arshavin's agent Pavel Andreev told Sport Express.

"We are currently considering the pros and cons of each and carrying out consultations. Andrei wants to leave and is interested in playing abroad.

"Everything will be in place no later than Wednesday."

According to the newspaper, the three teams in question are believed to be Tottenham and Arsenal and French Ligue 1 side Marseille.

However, Zenit spokesman Konstantin Sarsania insists no approach has been made for the player.
