Arsenal expect playmaker to leave Emirates Stadium.
PSV Eindhoven are interested in taking Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin on loan.
The 31-year-old rejected a move to Reading but is interested in linking up with former Russia coach Dick Advocaat in Holland.

Andrey Arshavin has been linked with a move away from Arsenal for a long time, having fallen out of favour with Arsene Wenger.
The Russia international has yet to be awarded a start in the Premier League or UEFA Champions League, and it would appear that the Gunners are desperate to get him off their books.
Like so many fringe players at Arsenal, Arshavin seems to earn rather a lot of money for sitting by the side of the pitch each weekend.
The Gunners would have more free funds to a) sign more players, and b) keep the ones they actually want to stay, if they could at least lose the dead wood from their squad.
Still, it seems a shame to talk of Arshavin in such terms.
The 31 year-old lit up UEFA Euro 2008 for his country, and enjoyed a phenomenal first season for Arsenal.
Despite rarely appearing to break into anything quicker than a jog, Arshavin seemed to get either a goal or assist in every game. More than that, when he was on the ball, things just seemed to happen.
Those days seem a long time ago now, and Arshavin has lost his place in the Russia squad – and the captaincy.
Perhaps a fresh start at PSV Eindhoven would do him good – as well as help Arsenal out financially.
