CSKA Moscow slap 26m price tag on Wagner Love as Tottenham ramp up interest

CSKA Moscow have slapped a £26million price tag on Vagner Love following reports that Tottenham Hotspur are keen on the Brazil hot shot. The 26-year-old has been in fine form for the Russian giants since returning from a year-long loan in South America for family reasons. Love had hoped to stay on longer in Brazil after stints with Palmeiras and Flamengo, but CSKA are refusing to agree another short-term deal and will only listen to big offers from European clubs. From Russia with Love: the CSKA Moscow striker (right) enjoyed a successful loan spell at Flamengo last season CSKA president Yevgeny Giner will not stand in the way of player moving to a bigger club, but the price has to be right. Sources in Brazil suggest a deal in January could be done for closer to £15m if Spurs do renew their interest. Tottenham target: Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta The north London club tried to sign him two years ago when attempts to snare Roman Pavlyuchenko from Spartak Moscow were in doubt. They tried again in the following January, but would not meet CSKA's price tag. Despite being unsettled, CSKA insist he has been nothing but professional since returning to them in August and he has scored seven in 10 games. Harry Redknapp would be in the market for more firepower this January if he can improve a squad that already includes Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch, Robbie Keane and Pavlyuchenko. The agent of Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta has also claimed interest from Tottenham in the 30-year-old Italy international. 'I don't like to comment on rumours,' said the agent, Andrea D'Amico. 'I do know that Vincenzo is tracked by several clubs, including Tottenham, who have been interested in the player for a long time. Having said that, nobody has called me directly.'  I'm here to stay!
