Arsenal reserve set for Spanish switch?

arshavin.jpgOne story that has seemed inevitable to everyone inside the Football Transfer Tavern looks to be nearing its conclusion according to Charles Perrin of the Daily Express.

Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin looks set to finally leave the Emirates Stadium, and make a switch to Spanish club Sevilla.

The Russian has endured a miserable few seasons in North London, and reports earlier in the month even suggested he was considering retirement due to the fact he has been so unhappy.

Although now it seems Arshavin has rubbished those reports, and hopes a move to Spain will reignite his career.

Arshavin made the move to the Gunners from Zenit St Petersburg in January 2009, and at first looked an inspired bit of business.

He will be forever remembered for scoring all four goals in an incredible 4-4 draw with Liverpool at Anfield, alongside a few other spectacular strikes.

But his form has tailed off badly in the last two years, and Arshavin has often found himself on the end of abuse from Arsenal supporters frustrated with the players apparent lack of desire and work ethic.

Clubs in Russia and Azerbaijan have also shown an interest, although it seems Sevilla have initiated the first move to land the player who has featured just 11 times in all competitions for the Gunners this season.

Will Sevilla snap up this unhappy Gunner? Rate this rumour below.
