The former Zenit St Petersburg star Pavel Pogrebynak has said that he wants the Arsenal winger Andrei Arshavin to join him at Reading. The Russian Pavel Pogrebynak is currently at Reading and is enjoying a good season with the Royals.

However, they are struggling done at the bottom of the table and are expected to spend big in the January transfer window in the hope of staying up. Andrei Arshavin has been spoken of as one of the possible transfer targets for the club. Reading have the ability to go after big players now due to the backing of the wealthy owners.

They have made it clear that they would like to sign a big-name player in the January transfer window, and the 31-year-old Andrei Arshavin seems like a possible transfer target for the club. The Russian winger has grown frustrated about life in North London after not getting regular first-team opportunities. Arshavin was a £ 15 million signing from Zenit St Petersburg four years ago, but he has been relegated to the position of a nonstarter in recent seasons. As a result, he is keen to move to a club where he can play regularly. Pavel Pogrebynak has said that Reading should come to his mind immediately.

"It’s Arshavin who has to make the decision. Anton Zingarevich knows him well enough without listening to my opinion, as he is from St Petersburg. But Andrey is a master and there is no doubt that it would be great to see him at Reading,” said the Reading star Pavel Pogrebynak about the possibility of Andrei Arshavin coming to Reading. The club has struggled to get any victory so far this season and are currently in the 18th position. They have just six points from the 10 matches played so far, while they have conceded 18 goals.
