Arsenal will reportedly allow Andrey Arshavin to leave the Emirates Stadium in January, should they find a suitable replacement.

The Russian midfielder has started only six times in the Barclays Premier League this season, and wants regular game time before Euro 2012.

According to The Mirror, Arsene Wenger is ready to sell Arshavin, and is willing to listen to offers for the 30-year-old next month, should he recruit adequate cover.

Arshavin became Arsenal's recored signing when he joined the Gunners from Zenit St Petersburg in 2009 and has scored 30 goals for the club.

However, after a promising start to his Arsenal career, Arshavin's form has declined in staggering fashion, and he is no longer a guaranteed starter for Wenger.

A return to Zenit has been touted for Arshavin, as have moves to Lokomotiv Moscow or Galatasaray.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are expected to sign defensive reinforcements during the transfer window following Johan Djourou's groin injury sustained in the loss to Manchester City.
