The rumour mill is running at full pelt as Juande Ramos considers his options for potential replacements for Dimitar Berbatov, this striker could be a very useful signing indeed.
Espanyol striker Luis Garcia is also a target, though Tottenham are baulking at the Spanish club’s £12m valuation of the 27-year-old, while a bid for Spartak Moscow’s star from Euro 2008, Roman Pavlyuchenko, is being considered.

£11m Pavlyuchenko was astounding at Euro 2008 and was of course instrumental in knocking out England in the qualifying stage and now it appears the tall forward is keen to give the Premier League a go. Obviously the Russian is a completely different style of player to Berbatov but the Spartak man could be a useful partner for Robbie Keane. Roman holds the ball up well and is pretty good on the ground for such a big man he can also beat a man or two on his route to goal, an old fashioned centre forward in many ways he also a great team player who runs his heart out for the cause. Do Spurs fans consider Pavlyuchenko the type of player who Ramos should consider bidding for?
