Scouted: Andrei Arshavin

Andrei Arshavin's return from a two-match suspension at Euro 2008 was eagerly awaited by Russia, and the Zenit St Petersburg forward didn't disappoint.

A menace all night to Sweden with a goal into the bargain, Talking Reds poster Red 68-99-08 says United should make a move...

Scouting Report

Player name: Andrei Arshavin
Position: Forward
Match Scouted: Russia v Sweden
Key Moment: Almost too many to mention. He really makes Russia tick. He scored Russia's second goal - a just reward for the impact he made throughout the game.
Strengths: Strong runner, good finisher, great movement. But undoubtedly he strongest asset is his skill and creativity.
Weaknesses: He's not the most physical of players, but his energy and ability to beat players means that shouldn't be a problem.
Suitability: Perfect. He's adaptable, he can play up front, off the main striker or out wide. He'd be a great addition to our squad.
Estimated Cost: Arsenal are the latest in a long line of clubs to be linked with a move that cost around £12million - but expect his price to rise if Russia continue to progress at Euro 2008.
