Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on Russian forward Roman Pavlyuchenko, and reportedly are in talks with the player.
BBC Sports reveals today that the Spartak Moscow forward and the English sides haven’t come to an agreement yet, but plan to continue their talks soon.
The 26-year-old, born in Mostovskoy, played for Dynamo Stavropol and Rotor Volgograd before joining Russian giants Spartak five years ago.
Since 2003, the player appeared in 145 matches and scored 75 goals.
But it wasn’t until his performance at Euro 2008 that other European clubs started to show interest. Not only did he score twice in Russia’s 2-1 win over England in qualification, he also went on to net three goals and earn a place in the ‘Team of the Tournament’ at the finals in Austria and Switzerland.
The Spurs would reportedly pay around twenty million Euros for the striker, who if he joins the London outfit, joins up with other new signins as GÃƒÂ³mes, Luka Modric and youngster Giovani Dos Santos.
