Roman Pavlyuchenko’s agent has sensationally claimed that North London rivals, Arsenal are chasing want-away striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.
Pavlyuchenko is fourth-choice striker at Spurs and has been very vocal about his desire to quit the club in January, in order to secure first team football.
Roma have been showing interest in the Russian, whilst the player himself has indicated a preference to move back to Russia.
However, Oleg Artemov has claimed that Arsenal are looking at his client to cover for Robin Van Persie during his lengthy lay-off.
“We are not happy about his situation at Tottenham, so we’ll do everything to ensure that he can change club in January.
“There were contacts with Roma, but for now only by phone.
“Interested in the player are also Spartak Moscow, Arsenal and Zenit St Petersburg, so anything can happen.”
