Arsenal : Arshavin NO MORE!

RUSSIAN star Andrei Arshavin has priced himself out of a potential move to Arsenal after demanding wages of £100,000 a week, according to media reports.

The 27-year-old forward's excessive wage demands have effectively ruled him out of a move to the Gunners, with Arsene Wenger reluctant to cater for a player he has only seen impress in a handful of games at the European Championships in Austria and Switzerland last month.

The Frenchman has admitted that he is a fan of the dimunitive Zenit St Petersburg attacker and it was rumoured that the Gunners had a bid of £19million turned down by the Russian club earlier this month.

And after declaring that he is still in the market for one, possibly two, more midfielders, the Frenchman may well have had Arshavin under his radar.

But this latest twist appears to have scared the Gunners boss off, as well as local rivals Spurs, who had also registered an interest.

Dennis Lachter, Arshavin's agent told:

"The price is very high, as are the personal terms."
