Spurs confident of signing £15 million striker

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has today claimed he is confident of landing Zenit St Petersburg striker Andrei Arshavin come the opening of the January transfer window. The Russian international was heavily linked with a move to White Hart Lane during the summer window however nothing was ever agreed between the two clubs. (Daily Mirror)

Spurs boss Juande Ramos was keen to land the 27-year old, with a possible £20 million move being rumoured however, Levy is now confident of signing the Zenit ace for just £15 million in January. During the summer saga, Arshavin's agent always maintained that his client wanted to join the North London club and he also didn't rule out a possible move come January.

I am pretty surprised to see Levy come out with this statement at this tough time for the club. Many Spurs fans felt the club didn't try very hard to land Arshavin, with Spurs repeatedly coming short of the Zenit asking price. I personally would of loved to see Arshavin come to the Premier League however I don't see that happening come January considering how poor a start Spurs have had.
