Rubin Kazan boss Leonid Slutsky has admitted that he is in the dark over the future of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia amidst speculation linking the winger with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Kvaratskhelia has come on leaps and bounds since joining Kazan as a teenager back in 2019.
The winger scored four goals and providing eight assists in the Russian Premier League last season and his performances have seemingly attracted the interest of several English clubs.
The 20-year-old admitted earlier in the summer that Leeds United were one of the clubs who were in talks to sign him.
Reports from Italy subsequently indicated that Spurs and AC Milan were also eyeing summer moves for the Georgian international, who is allegedly valued by Kazan at around €18m (£15.5million).
Kvaratskhelia has started all three of the Russian club’s league games so far this season but Slutsky has now directly addressed the speculation linking the youngster with a move to North London.
He told Championat: “I don’t know anything about Khvichy’s imminent move to Tottenham.
“Usually, his agent speaks on this topic. It is better to ask him.”

This response from Slutsky feels like a dig at Kvaratskhelia’s agent who admitted last week that Spurs were interested in the 20-year-old.
I do wonder if Tottenham will cash in on Bergwijn this summer if they sign the Georgian as we are now pretty well stacked for wingers, especially after Bryan Gil’s capture.
