The 31-year-old Russian forward has fallen out-of-favour at The Emirates and has reportedly been told by Arsene Wenger he can leave the club for around £4 million this month.

Arshavin’s current contract expires in the summer and with no signs of a new deal visible and starting just two games for The Gunners so far this season, which both came in the Capital One Cup, it looks highly likely if he is not sold this month then he will leave the club on a free in the upcoming summer.

Reading are also believed to be interested in the Russian international, but have yet to make a bid for the diminutive forward.

If we can recoup some cash, even if it is just £4 million, from Arshavin’s sale this month then great.

I personally don’t want to see him leave, but he is not being played and is behind a few players in the pecking order now. So it’s probably best for the club and the player to part ways.
