Spurs Striker Could be Set For £8.5m Bundesliga Move

Only a matter of time!

The Rumour

Football - Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United Barclays Premier League

Roman Pavlyuchenko is one of the players Stuttgart have considered as a replacement for Mario Gomez, according to their director of sport Horst Heldt.

The Tottenham forward would become a serious option should Stuttgart fail in their bid to sign Demba Ba from Bundesliga rivals Hoffenheim, Heldt revealed to the Stuttgarter Nachrichten newspaper.

The Analysis

I would imagine that if Roman Pavyluchenko had anything to say on the matter he would like to prove to Harry Redknapp that he can indeed cut it in the Premier League but it seems increasingly unlikely the Russian will get a chance to stake his claim as he is hawked out to the highest bidder.

Roma were last weeks interested party now it appears that Stuttgart are looking to the former Spartak man to replace Bayern Munich bound Mario Gomez.

The Spurs boss seems to have his heart set on selling at least one of this main four strikers and Roman is perhaps the most likely to leave first but the club will struggle to recoup all that they invested in the Euro 2008 sensation.

The Likelihood

Pavyluchenko to Stuttgart: If not the Germans then somewhere else, he has played his last game for the north London side.
