According to several reports Arsenal are interested in the services of Zenit St Petersburg striker Sardar Azmoun. Italian tabloid Area Napoli claims that the Gunners have contacted cult hero Andrey Arshavin over a move to sign Azmoun. And the former Arsenal striker has urged his former side to raid the Russia giant.
The young striker is regarded as one of the best forwards in the Russian League and has attracted the interest of several clubs including Italian side Napoli. However, the report claims that Arsenal have the edge as Arshavin oversees transfers and they are hoping that his connection to the club could provide a better negotiation ground for the forward.
