Mega-rich Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala have made a move for Arsenal misfit Andrey Arshavin.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger now faces a dilemma as to whether to cash in on 30-year-old Arshavin who has 18 months left on his contract.

But Arshavin is in Arsenal’s plans for the trip to Bolton tomorrow night and is in the squad. However, the Russian transfer window does not shut until next month.

That means the sale does not have to be done before 11pm but Arsenal would need to get a replacement before the English deadline shuts.

Arshavin has also said he would only return to former club Zenit St Petersburg if he goes back to Russia.

He joined Arsenal for £12m three years ago and they would want at least £8m but do not want to leave themselves short for the rest of the season.

Wenger said last week he “loves” Arshavin and wants him to stay but the Russian playmaker has been booed by Arsenal fans recently.
