Loftus Road side chase White Hart Lane striker.
Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is wanted by Borussia Dortmund, but today a move closer to home could be on the cards, that is his London home, as Queens Park Rangers have expressed an interest in signing the Russian International.
It is well known that QPR have money to spend since business man Tony Fernandes took over at Loftus Road, but a loan deal could initially be on the cards according to a source from inside the London club today.
Three years ago Spurs paid around £14million for Pavyluchenko, who will turn 30 in December, and they would be looking for at least £10miilion of that in January if not more. It is a sum that is easily affordable for QPR and would be money well spent especially if Pavlyuchenko’s goals kept them in the Premier League.
Harry Redknapp may well have no qualms about letting Roman Pavlyuchenko leave White Hart Lane after the Russian has gone over three years trying to prove his worth as a starting striker. The former Spartak Moscow man arrived just a few months before Juande Ramos was axed and the big forward has spent a great deal of the time since, warming the North London club’s bench.
The 29 year old has made 106 appearances for Tottenham but 38 of those have come from the bench however Pavyluchenko has still managed to net 39 goals for the club but now finds himself down the pecking order with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor the club’s starting strikers.
QPR could do with added striking options having netted just five goals in seven Premier League games, three of those in one game away at Wolves, and after Tony Fernandes took over as the Super Hoops chairman, he has had no problem dipping into his pocket to bring in top quality additions to Neil Warnock’s squad.
Joey Barton, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Armand Traore, Anton Ferdinand and Luke Young arrived to add strength and experience to the West London club and a bid of £10m for Pavlyuchenko would be a wise one to make, especially if it helps keep the club from the drop.
