Well it appears that one respected source appears convinced that Tottenham are about to speedily invest the funds from the imminent Robbie Keane sale!
With Robbie Keane on the verge of joining Liverpool and Dimitar Berbatov biding his time before becoming a Manchester United player (ignore misleading claims from Old Trafford that they might walk away from the £22m deal), Spurs are ready to give their supporters some long overdue good news by capturing Arshavin for £17m. Although the Russia forward would prefer Barcelona or a Champions League club in England, Spurs have made by far the best offer and it looks increasingly likely he will have little choice but to accept a move to White Hart Lane having made it clear he will not play again for Zenit.

The Insider has given the possibility of this move as a 4 out of 5, which could be good news for Spurs fans and Juande Ramos as this source tends to get a high percentage of the high-scoring rumours correct. Whatever Tottenham fans feel about Robbie Keane’s decision to quite White Hart Lane, and they are bound to be very annoyed about his sudden change of heart to join a club he may or may not have been a boyhood fan of, the arrival of Arshavin will surely help ease the pain.
Creativity linking the midfield and attack could be a big help to the side, and this signing would represent the fourth top signing of the summer, so plenty for the fans to be happy about! Could Arshavin be a big success at the club or are there fears that he is overrated after a successful Euro 2008?
