Arshavin wants to leave Arsenal and could move to Turkey - agent

The Russia international left the Emirates last season for a loan switch and is likely to exit the club on a permanent basis with a number of teams interested in signing him
The agent of Andrey Arshavin has stated that the forward wants to leave Arsenal and has already turned down a switch to Anzhi Makhachkala, but could move to a club in Turkey.

Arshavin joined his former team Zenit St. Petersburg on loan in January after falling out of favour at the Emirates, and his representative Dennis Lakhter has revealed the player is seeking another move away from England.

"Arsene Wenger will transfer some new names for the forward line for the upcoming season," Lakhter told Radyospor.

"Arshavin doesn't want to stay in the team. Next year, he could continue his career in Turkey. I know that two clubs in Turkey are seriously interested in Arshavin.

"There also some offers from the MLS, but Arshavin does not want to go to America. He also rejected an offer from Anzhi."

The 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Turkish giants Galatasaray after falling further down the pecking order at the Gunners following the arrival of attacking duo Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.
