The Royals have struggled to adjust to life in the Premier League since promotion in May, and remain without a win after nine games. They signed seven first-team players during the summer including Zingarevich's fellow Russian Pavel Pogrebnyak.
And a move for a second Russian international could be on the cards, as Reading attempt to strengthen their squad in January by introducing more new faces.
"Arshavin is interesting for Reading," Zingarevich told Spb.jp.ru. "But he is one of 10 players that we are interested in."
Arshavin's future at Arsenal is unclear. After spending the end of last season on loan to Zenit St Petersburg he has begun to force his way back into Arsene Wenger's thinking this term but a move away may be welcomed.
