Italian side keen on Emirates Stadium attacker.
Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin is a cut-price £6million January target for Lazio.
The Italian giants are ready to move in and present the Gunners with a dilemma over whether they should cut their losses and sell Arshavin, who has 18 months left on his contract.
The Mirror revealed last month that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be ready to listen to offers, although he will not want to leave himself short of cover.
Arshavin, a £12m signing three years ago, is out of contract in the summer of 2013 and his value will diminish this summer – Wenger has already hinted that Arsenal will not offer him a new deal.

A move away from the Emirates Stadium may well be the best for all concerned as Andrei Arshavin flits from one ineffective performance to the next. A move to Lazio may well herald a fresh start for the 30 year old ahead of the Euro 2012 finals and though clearly a fee of £6m would represent a big loss on the original Gunners investment it seems likely that Arsene Wenger will sell the Russian attacker to the highest bidder this month.
Arsenal battled long and hard to land Arshavin, who arrived six months after his eye catching performance at the 2008 European Championships, but much like his fellow countryman Roman Pavlyuchenko he has failed to make an impact after a solid start to his career at the North London club.
Clearly many will remember Arshavin’s four goal haul at Anfield but Gunners fans would struggle to recall many other occasions when the talented attacker shone in an Arsenal shirt.
