Kevin Keegan looks to chop and change things at St James’ Park and, with that in mind, he has set his sights on a great addition to his Newcastle side…
Newcastle have moved for Andrei Arshavin after Zenit St Petersburg gave their Russian star a week to seal a transfer to the Premier League.
Arshavin, 27, suspended for Russia’s first two Euro 2008 games, is keen to come to England and one of his representatives has spoken to Newcastle talent-spotter Dennis Wise.
Wise is speaking to Kevin Keegan about the forward, who is available for £11million.

Arshavin is a hugely talented player who is keen to come to the megabucks world of the Premier League and Newcastle United might well be a good fit for the Russian. Keegan is clearly looking to freshen his squad up and a number of names have been linked with moves to and from the club. As we get ever nearer to the new season, expect more and more names to be added to the mix, however if this speculation proves true then the Toon Army may have a new hero to cheer on.
Do Geordie fans think that Andrei would be worthy of splashing such a fee on or are there other talents that seem like better value for money?
