Shatov was born and grew up in Nizhny Tagil, where the winter conditions made playing outdoor sports very difficult. As a result, Shatov began playing futsal from the age of 14, before committing fully to association football two years later.
Although Shatov was scouted by CSKA Moscow, he accepted an offer to join Anzhi Makhachkala during the 2011-12 winter transfer window. Upon joining Anzhi, Shatov was teammates with Roberto Carlos and Samuel Eto'o. Shatov earned his first call-up to the Russian men's national team while playing at Anzhi. At the end of Shatov's first season, the team finished in fifth place in the Russian Premier League and suffered several changes of coaches.
Shatov was signed by Zenit Saint Petersburg in the summer of 2013. During the 2015-16 season, Shatov was a regular in Zenit's Champions League campaign that season, scoring the winning goal against Gent in the group stage. Zenit was eventually eliminated by Benfica in the final 16.
Shatov left Zenit on 29 July 2020, when his contract with the club expired.
