The on-off move of Andrei Arshavin to Spurs (or perhaps off-off move) could yet go ahead according to the midfielder’s agent.
Agent Dennis Lachter told Sky Sports News: “Zenit asked for â‚¬25million [Â£19.69m] for the transfer of Arshavin, this is the last price of the team.
“Four days ago in a private meeting with one of the Tottenham representatives, it was take it or leave it, that is the last price.
“I have got to talk with president of Zenit, Alexander Dukov, if he wants to buy somebody he needs to sell somebody, so he is pushing for Zenit himself to sell Andrei as he understands the contribution of the player.
“We still have a lot of time and from my experience a lot of deals are finalised close to the end of the window, so we will see.”
Meanwhile, Spurs are linked again with Spartak Moscow striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, who is said to be a target of higher priority than Arshavin.
