Dmitri Galiamin has ruled out selling Aleksandr Kokorin to Zenit St. Petersburg and has confirmed the departures of Zvjezdan Misimović and Gordon Schildenfeld from Moscow
Dynamo Moscow sporting director, Dmitri Galiamin, has denied the rumours linking the Russian Premier League club with Andrei Arshavin after insisting that they have not made any inquiry about the Russian striker.
“I do not want to comment on the rumours but I can confirm you that we have not offered anything for his services. We will enter the transfer market but we are not interested in signing Arshavin.” The former Anzhi Makhachkala man was quoted as saying.
Lazio SSC, PSV Eindhoven and Fulham FC have shown interest in signing Arsenal FC’s Arshavin after the 31-year-old reportedly refused a chance to join Reading after leaving Emirates stadium earlier this month.
According to the British press, Lazio are ready to offer 4 million for the services of the Russian forward, whose contract expires in June.
The Gunners head coach, Arsene Wenger, is ready to let Arshavin leave the English Premier League club this winter fearing that he might get nothing for the midfielder-cum-striker for whom he reportedly paid 17 million Euros three years ago.
If speculations are to be believed, Dick Advocaat may bid for the Russian player whom he coaches during his spell with the Russian national team at Euro 2012.News in Russian media linked Arshavin with the Moscow-based club, suggesting that the Dinamiki will
sign the 31-year-old after selling Aleksandr Kokorin to the defending league champions, Zenit St. Petersburg.
However, Galiamin confirmed that they are not thinking about any such deal and assured the fans of not selling star players in the near future.
“Kokorin is having a great season, so an increased interest in the player from top clubs is logical but we have not held talks with any club regarding his sale or lease," he concluded.
Galiamin went on to confirm that Zvjezdan Misimović and Gordon Schildenfeld have left the Moscow-based club in search of more playing time. Misimović joined Guizhou Renhe for reportedly 3.5 million Euros while Schildenfeld joined PAOK on a six-month loan spell.
