Tottenham Hotspur FC, hard on the heels of the Manchester duo at the top of the English Premiership, are allegedly looking for a new striker to add to the already powerful Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe. The target is 25-year-old Loic Remy from Marseille. Could this spell the end of Roman Pavlyuchenko's stay in England?
Recent rumours that Roman Pavlyuchenko was considering a move to Russian Premier League team Anzhi Makhachkala may be more than that, with the latest interest shown by Spurs in the Marseille striker. If the Russian striker has found it impossible to get into the starting line-up behind Adebayor and Defoe, how much harder will it be with Loic Remy in the team?
The Daily Mirror recently quoted Oleg Artemov the agent of Russian striker, who declared that until now, Roman has not considered returning to Russia. However, with the season now half over, the Russian star cannot get a place in the first team, behind the duo preferred by team coach Harry Redknapp, Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe.
The giant Russian Number 9 started his playing career in Dynamo Stavropol, where he scored one goal in 31 appearances (1998-1999), then from 2000 to 2002, he played for Rotor Volgograd, where he scored 14 goals in 65 games, then from 2003-2008, at Spartak Moskva FC, 69 goals in 141 games. Since his transfer to London club Tottenham Hotspur FC, he has placed in 76 games and has scored 21 goals. For the Russian senior team, where he made his first senior appearance in 2003, he has appeared 45 times and scored 20 goals.
Tevez saga continues
The Carlos Tevez saga continues, with Manchester City desperate to rid themselves of the troubled Argentinean striker. Paris Saint Germain, now managed by Carlo Ancelotti, seems to be the interested party. Manchester City want to sell the 27-year-old striker who had declared he did not want to live in Manchester any more.
Russian club CSKA in transfer rumours
Among the transfer rumours heading into and out of the Premiership are those surrounding CSKA Moskva's 25-year-old Japanese playmaker Keisuke Honda. Heading in the opposite direction could be the Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov, 30.
