The two forwards shared a successful partnership at Zenit St Petersburg and would love a reunion when the draw takes place on Friday.
"I want to play against Arshavin," said Pogrebnyak. "I've not seen Andrey and would love to meet him. On the pitch, even more so. Arsenal, of course, are one of Europe's top team, probably the best at passing the ball. But, I repeat, I very much want to see Arshavin and talk to him."
