is the Andrei Arshavin saga coming to an end?

The clock is ticking down for the opening of the transfer window and with it the question of whether Andrei Arshavin will finally get his wish and leave Zenit Saint Petersburg. While most consider his move a foregone conclusion, with the most recent rumoured suitor being Arsène Wenger. While clatter of Real Madrid and Tottenham seemed to have died down of late, Zenit have shown little interest of bargaining with the proposed price in the £20m region.

Given economic constraints to overall world's financial affairs and in lieu of Andrei Arshavin's disdain for returning, I expect Zenit to move on the price.
