Fulham manager Martin Jol has dismissed suggestions that he will make a move to bring Arsenal winger Andrey Arshavin to Craven Cottage tin the January transfer window.

Arshavin has seen his role at Arsenal become restricted over the past 12 months and has frequently been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

The 31-year-old was sent out on loan by Arsenal last season, and is behind the likes of Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Arsene Wenger's selection order.

Fulham has been touted as a potential destination for Arshavin, were he to leave Arsenal during the winter transfer period, but Jol has rubbished claims he is interested in the Gunners attacker.

Jol was short in his response when asked at a press conference if Arshavin was on his January shopping list, simply replying with 'no'.

Arshavin joined Arsenal from Zenit St Petersburg in January 2009 and has since made 139 appearances for the Gunners, during which he has scored 31 goals.

The Russia international arrived at Arsenal as the club's record transfer, but has failed to live up to expectation, after an initially bright start to his Gunners career.
