Arsene Wenger looks to sell striker Andrei Arshavin for £12m this winter.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to listen to offers for Russian forward Andrei Arshavin, according to reports.

Arshavin, who arrived at the Emirates over two seasons ago, cost the club close to £18m from Zenit St. Petersburg. Even so, the Frenchman is understood to be willing to allow his inconsistent attacking option to leave for a fee in the region £12m this winter, according to The Mirror.

The Russia international was linked with a move to both Real Madrid and Barcelona before signing with the Gunners. However, after struggling to secure a starting spot in the lineup after almost three seasons at the club, Arshavin has been deemed surplus to requirements in North London.
