Hiddink sets sights on Roman

10 Apr 2009 - 08:00:13

Interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has suggested Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko would be a good signing for the Stamford Bridge club.

The Dutch coach is only under contract at Chelsea until the end of the season but has been asked to identify a number of potential summer transfer targets.

Hiddink coaches Pavlyuchenko at international level with Russia and believes the former Spartak Moscow striker would be a good fit at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old has been in and out of the starting line-up at Spurs this season following his £14million arrival from Russian football last summer.

"Pavlyuvenko is capable of reinforcing Chelsea's attacking line to add both dynamics and power," a Russian news agency quoted Hiddink as saying.

"It's true that I used to call him a Sleeping Giant, but since he moved to Tottenham he started thinking on the pitch much faster and now plays better.

"It's a pity that Spurs keep him on the bench. I would never do that. Such a talented footballer as Roman should play as often as possible.

"I think that Pavlyuchenko would be a good signing for Chelsea."
