Wenger says Arsenal have not agreed fee for Arshavin

ArsenalLondon - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Tuesday that his club have not agreed a fee to sign Russian forward Andrei Arshavin.

Arshavin's club, Zenit St Petersburg, said on Monday night that only personal terms remained to be agreed, but Wenger denied that any agreement was in place.

"(Rumours of an agreed fee) are not true," the Frenchman said.

"In this job "far" doesn't mean a lot. I believe that we are not close to concluding any transfer, Arshavin or anybody else.

"I don't know [if it will happen] frankly. Time is getting short and at the moment I am more focused to win the game tomorrow. We know we are in front of a big game and the most important thing is to focus on that." (dpa)
