Santos and Arshavin heading for Arsenal exit?

If Arsene Wenger has the reported transfer funds of around £70 million this summer, then Arsenal should soon have a new record signing. The current one, Andrey Arshavin, has never lived up to his price tag, and could be heading out of the club this summer after attracting interest from Azerbaijan and Australia, according to Russian reports.

Azerbaijan is situated to the south of Arshavin’s native Russia, and there is money at some of their teams. Khazar Lankaran is one of them, with John Toshack recently installed as the manager, and a spokesman for the club has suggested that Arshavin could be one of their summer targets.
