Reports on talkSPORT indicate that Andrei Arshavin is the latest player to be linked with a big money move to up-and-coming Russian outfit, Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Russian Premier League club are bankrolled by billionaire, Suleyman Kerimove and have already signed a host of big-time players such as Roberto Carlos and Diego Tardelli, while Chelsea midfielder Yuri Zhirkov is also thought to be in talks.
A £15m bid is being prepared by Anzhi for 30 year old Arshavin, and after an indifferent 12 months at the club, despite 52 appearances, Wenger could well recoup the money spent on him two years ago.
Any deal could depend on what happens to Samir Nasri however, with increased speculation of an imminent Manchester City bid.
