Stoke City are believed to be plotting a double swoop for Tottenham’s Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jamie O’Hara.
Pavlyuchenko had a fine second half of the season at White Hart Lane, having initially been deemed surplus to requirements by Harry Redknapp.
His resurgence in form will mean Spurs will be reluctant to let him leave, with the Daily Mail’s quoted Â£11million fee seeming rather cheap on that basis.
The Russian has already signalled an intention to remain with Spurs, but has constantly been linked with moves away from the club.
Stoke boss, Tony Pulis saw his side a touch goal-shy last season, and sees Pavlyuchenko as the ideal man to help rectify that problem.
O’Hara is also in his sights, after Harry Redknapp agreed to allow him to leave this summer, having given him no guarantees of regular first-team football.
Whether Stoke will be willing to meet the Â£8m asking price remains to be seen.
O’Hara had a successful last season, despite being relegated with Portsmouth and has also been linked with Newcastle United and West Ham.
