Arsenal Star Training With Zenit St Petersburg Ahead Of £10m Switch

Emirates star looks to be heading back to the Petrovsky Stadium.

Arsenal winger Andrey Arshavin is training with Zenit St Petersburg ahead of a proposed £10million move back to the Russian side.

The 29-year-old endured a disappointing season at the Emirates and now manager Arsene Wenger is apparently ready to listen to offers for the star.

Arshavin scored only six goals in 37 appearances and fans are becoming tired of his lazy defensive displays and casual flicks.

The Russian international will return to his home city and train with his former club on Thursday in order to keep fit before a Euro 2012 qualifier against Armenia.

Zenit have been open in their desire to re-sign Arshavin who moved in February 2009 to North London for £15million.

The training will allow new coach Luciano Spalletti a close look at the player who turns 30 next week, but there are rumours Fenerbahce are keen on him too.

The Russian Super Cup holders are also keen on signing Chelsea left-back Yuri Zhirkov and Everton midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.
