A stuttering Spurs career looks set to come to an abrupt end.
Roman Pavlyuchenko’s agent Oliver Wendt admits that he is set to meet Roma officials over a possible move within the next two days.
The Russian striker has grown frustrated with life at White Hart Lane this season having slipped behind Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe in the pecking order.
The 27-year-old is yet to start a Premier League game this term with his only goal coming in the Carling Cup at Doncaster in August.
The former Spartak Moscow ace has recently revealed that he would be interested in signing for the Serie A giants and all that is left to do is for Tottenham to agree the transfer.
“Roman wants to leave London and wants to go to Rome,” Wendt told romagiallorossa.com.
“If Tottenham clears, Roman could be a player of AS Roma. Today or tomorrow I will meet leaders of Roma and we will discuss about it.
“I have had contact with them even last week and they have shown real interest.” (Sky Sports)
This seems like one of those deals that is very likely to be completed in a speedy fashion. Harry Redknapp won’t want to stand in the way of Roman’s White Hart Lane exit knowing that the Russian has grown disillusioned with his lot at Tottenham and it would be in both sides interest to see Pavyluchenko make a move away from Spurs just as long as the north London side sees a decent offer come in for the player they only purchased less than 18 months ago.
Interest in the 27 year old has been shown from across Europe with the likes of Valencia, Spartak Moscow and reportedly Liverpool being expressed in recent months. With all sides set to meet to discuss a potential move it appears the forward’s brief and slightly stifled career at Tottenham is set to come to an end very soon.
