Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
According to reports making the round, Arsenal have FINALLY agreed an incomplete deal with Dynamo Moscow for Aleksandr Kokorin to Arsenal in January.
According to France Football, they claim Dynamo Moscow have agreed to let go of kokorin for a reported fee worth around £4.4million.
However, Former Manchester United star Andrei Kanchelskis has urged his fellow countryman to not waste the opportunity to join Arsenal.
“Kokorin should jump at the chance to leave Russia and go to that country,” Kanchelskis told Reuters, according to National.
“The Russian championship is very weak and Aleksandr can progress at Arsenal. Arsenal are the best option for Aleksandr’s career. If he is prepared to work a lot, he will not have any problems. He will not be like Andrei Arshavin and will become a top-class forward for the London club.”
