Arshavin cant hide Spain link

Russia's star midfielder from Euro 2008, Andrei Arshavin, has admitted he is more than likely to move to Spain as opposed to the Premiership. Arshavin has been linked with Arsenal, but now Barcelona and Villarreal have emerged as potential suitors for the player.

"Perhaps the time has come, yes," Arshavin was quoted as saying in Spanish sports daily AS.

"I know that I have offers from England and Germany, but what I really want is to play in the Primera Liga.

"It's the championship that I have always followed, I like how football is played there.

"But for now, I have no offers from Spain."
