Ramos has intervened personally to persuade Arshavin that a move to Tottenham would see the Zenit St Petersburg star become a key member of his starting line-up.
"Ramos called Andrei and explained his vision of football and the future of Andrei in his team," said agent Dennis Lachter. "He told him he would be a key player and that he is very interested in signing him."
According to the agent, Ramos is so determined to land Arshavin that he has persuaded Spurs to smash their £60,000-a-week wage ceiling to help convince him that his future lies at White Hart Lane.
With Arshavin eager to earn in the region of £80,000-a-week, Lachter claimed Spurs "are the only team that have accepted his wage conditions".
Lachter is confident Ramos will finally get his man, adding: "Spurs are ready to pay nearly all the money Zenit are asking for."
