Andrei Arshavin insists a move to Barcelona is his top priority as speculation over his future continues in the wake of his displays for Russia at Euro 2008.

Zenit St Petersburg say that no English clubs have bid for their playmaker Andrei Arshavin, the subject of a reported £12m offer from Barcelona last week and who is also thought to have attracted interest from Arsenal and Chelsea. A Zenit spokesman said that it would take £24m to prise Arshavin, who was impressive for Russia at Euro 2008, from the Uefa Cup holders. His agent, meanwhile, said, "Andrei would like to play in the Premier League but he will not accept an offer from clubs like Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa. There are only four British clubs he would play for and they are in the Champions League."

Zenit St Petersburg have rejected a 15 million euro (£12m) offer from Barcelona for playmaker Andrei Arshavin, the Russian champions said on Monday.

For a man who cannot even get into the Spain team, Cesc Fabregas is nevertheless doing a good job of winning Euro 2008 on his own. The Arsenal midfielder might not start matches but, as Russia found out last night, he knows exactly how to finish them off and it was his influence that guided Spain into the Euro 2008 final against Germany.

Andrei Arshavin says he is ready to turn down offers from clubs in England and Germany in favour of a move to Spain. Manchester City, Newcastle and Arsenal are three of the Premier League clubs reportedly interested in the Zenit St Petersburg player. Without revealing names, the 27-year-old claimed to know of offers from England, but says that his dream is to play in La Liga. "I know that I have offers from England and Germany, but what I would really like is to play in the Spanish League, in the Primera Division," he told a Spanish newspaper. "It's the championship I've always followed, I like the football they play there. But, at the moment, I don't have any offers from Spain."

Andrei Arshavin made himself one of the most sought-after players in European football with his performance for Russia against the Netherlands. However, the problem that potential suitors will encounter with the striker who can play on the wing is the £10m fee that Zenit St Petersburg want for the 27-year-old.

Chelsea will be confident that they landed the right man in appointing Luiz Felipe Scolari as their new £6m-a-year manager, but there may be a tinge of regret as to the one who, for political reasons, they did not pursue.

Maybe Steve McClaren deserves some sympathy after all. And not just for his floundering as a radio summariser. Russia produced a sensational performance last night to join Croatia in the last eight of the European Championships. Both were in England's group for the qualification campaign which cost McClaren his job. But then maybe he, like many others, was guilty of simply underestimating such opponents.
Wednesday 18 June 2008
It's a clear indication of the importance of Andrei Arshavin to Russia that he was even included in the squad for Euro 2008. Banned from the first two matches because of a foolish red card collected for kicking out at an opponent just six minutes from the end of the final qualification match - away to Andorra, of all teams - meant that the involvement of the 27-year-old became a hot subject for debate.

The Soviet Union was one of the giants of the European Championship, winning the inaugural competition in 1960 and finishing as runner-up in 1964, 1972 and 1988. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain and the collapse of Communism in the years following that last defeat, however, the Russian state that was at the heart of the USSR has struggled.

A four-man shortlist for the job of manager at Blackburn Rovers was drawn up last night, with the club hopeful of having Mark Hughes' successor in place by the end of the week.

Avram Grant can expect to be told within the next 72 hours whether he will continue as Chelsea manager. The signs remain that the 53-year-old Israeli will be replaced after just eight months in charge, even though he led Chelsea to Wednesday's European Cup final, losing only on penalties, as well as to second place in the Premier League.
