Jol linked with Emirates raid
Fulham boss Martin Jol is reportedly ready to rival Zenit St Petersburg for Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin.
The Russian international seems set to depart the Emirates Stadium this summer after joining Zenit on loan at the end of last season. Zenit are keen to sign Arshavin on a permanent basis but it is thought the Russian side are unwilling to match the Gunners' £8million asking price, with Zenit prepared to pay around £5million for the 31-year-old. Jol is eager to add to his attacking options this summer, with Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele widely tipped to depart Craven Cottage, and the Ducthman has been linked with a move for Arshavin, with Jol expected to be handed money to reinvest in his squad should Dempsey or Dembele be sold.
