ARSENAL stars are teasing Russian team-mate Andrey Arshavin by joking he sounds like telly's Compare The Market meerkat. Whenever he speaks, they repeat lines from the adverts for the comparison website. A club source revealed: "A few of the first team lads started it off and now the joke has spread around the whole club. Andrey's been getting a lot of stick over it but it's all good banter." In the ads, an animated meerkat called Aleksandr Orlov with a thick East European accident has the catchphrase: "Eet's seemple." He has become a cult hit, with half a million Facebook fans and 20,000 followers on Twitter.Attacker Arshavin, 28, signed for the Gunners in the January transfer window for £15million from Zenit St Petersburg. Fans hope he can follow in the footsteps of stars such as Paul Meerson, sorry, Merson. The source added: "Andrey has seen the funny side - but I think he was a bit confused at first." :D
