Cash-rich Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala have not given up in their pursuit of Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin according to

The 30-year-old playmaker has been tracked by the club all summer, and having strengthened their playing ranks with the likes of Roberto Carlos, Yuri Zhirkov and Samuel Eto'o - they retain hope of convincing Arshavin to return to his homeland.

Amid speculation surrounding his future, the Gunners midfielder stated his intention to remain at the Emirates Stadium, and fight for his place in the Arsenal side, following the high-profile departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri from Arsene Wenger's squad.

However, with Anzhi prepared to pay up to €17million to tempt Arsenal into selling Arshavin, a deal could be back on for the former Zenit St. Petersburg player - who could look differently upon his future in north London, if the club were to accept the bid.

But having strengthened with the addition of five deadline day signings, Wenger looks to have temporarily alleviated the mounting pressure, as he looks to restore the club's fledgling campaign, and get Arsenal's title tilt back on track.
