Dennis Lachter said that Arshavin, who plays for Russia's Zenit St. Petersburg, was not keen on moving to Tottenham but he had a change of heart lately.
"Andrei is ready to move to Tottenham, now it just depends on Zenit," Lachter told Sovietsky Sport.
"Arshavin changed his decision [about joining Spurs] due to excellent interest from Spurs.
"They are the one team that fully agreed his contract demands and ready to pay almost the full price that Zenit wants."
The 27-year-old helped Zenit win the UEFA Cup last season at the expense of Scottish giants Rangers.
He also impressed at EURO 2008, helping Russia reach the tournament's semi-final.
Arshavin was linked with a host of clubs such as Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea.
