Spurs in poll position to sign £24 million rated attacker !

Tottenham appear to be leading the race to sign Andrei Arshavin according to reports in the Daily Mail today.

After helping his club side of Zenit St.Petersburg to UEFA Cup success and bringing Russia to the semi finals of Euro 2008 after initially being outsiders, Andrei Arshavin is one of the most sought after players by Europe's big guns this Summer.

The Russian international has been the centre of one of the biggest sagas this transfer window with Chelsea, Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid all vying to snatch up the highly rated attacking midfielder.

However reports today suggest Juande Ramos looks favourite to sign the 27 year old after the players agent said that he would be interested in a move to White Hart Lane. Zenit are thought to be valuing Arshavin at about £24 million, however Spurs arelikely to make an opening bid about £5 million less than that.
