Ramsey hails Arshavin impact
"He's a role model for kids from all age groups to idolise."
Ramsey and Arshavin could be facing each other on Wednesday night, as Wales meet Russia in a 2010 World Cup qualifier.
However, the latter's participation is currently in doubt, after he hobbled off during the Gunners' 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford and missed the tie with Liechenstein at the weekend.
"I don't know his situation but he came off against Manchester United with a slight groin injury," Ramsey said.
"I don't know if he'll risk it. I picked up a slight knee knock in the same game and he was laughing in the changing room afterwards saying at least I wouldn't get to play against Russia!"
