St. Petersburg, June 11 (IANS) Russian star Andrei Arshavin is likely to make a return to his native football club Zenit St. Petersburg for the 2013-14 season.

Zenit has begun negotiations with the 32-year-old Arsenal midfielder, whose contract with the London club expires at the end of June, reports Xinhua.
