Spartak Moscow want Tottenham striker Pavlyuchenko

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has attracted the attention of Russian side Spartak Moscow, according to Goal.com.

The striker recently spoke out of his frustration at not being given first team opportunities by Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, and suggested an exit would be on the cards at the end of the season if he does not get the opportunity to play.

This has apparently drawn interest from his home nation, with former club Spartak Moscow now going public with their interest. Sporting Director of Spartak, Dmitri Popov told Championat.ru: “Roman Pavlyuchenko is a top class player. In the Russian championship he will (and has) scored goals consistently, plus he has a Russian passport. In addition he has played for the club.

“Therefore you can understand why we are interested. The thing will be the price that Tottenham want. Last year we made an official offer and never received a reply.”

Pavlyuchenko scored 89 goals in 141 appearances in his previous spell at Spartak.
