Home » Europe, Latest » Arsenal show interest in Russia striker Alan Dzagoev

Arsenal are the first club to react to Alan Dzagoev’s flying start to Euro 2012.

The Russian forward has scored three goals in two games to help his country to the brink of the quarter-finals.

The CSKA Moscow star is out of contract at the end of the calendar year but is known to be comfortable at the club he joined in 2008.

Arsene Wenger is keen to strengthen all aspects of the Gunners’ forward line and has already bought in Lukas Podolski while continuing to pursue Montpellier’s Olivier Giroud.

Dzagoev operates across the line behind the striker and has in Poland and Ukraine proved his worth when he gets beyond a leading man.

And now, with Andrey Arshavin angling for a move away from Arsenal back his homeland, German newspaper Bild report that his fellow countryman could be the man to replace him.

CSKA value Dzagoev at £13million but are aware his precarious contract situation means they may be forced to accept a lower offer.
