Lokomotiv back in for Pav

18 May 2010 - 09:17:46

Russia international Roman Pavlyuchenko is once again being linked with a transfer from Tottenham with Lokomotiv Moscow leading the chase for his signature.

The 28-year-old was expected to leave White Hart Lane in January after being left out of Harry Redknapp's first-team plans, but scored several crucial goals in the second half of the campaign.

Pavlyuchenko had been targeted by Lokomotiv in the winter transfer window but has now scored 24 goals in just 38 starts and 22 substitute appearances for Spurs.

Lokomotiv president Nikolai Naumov said of his club's renewed interest in the striker: "In the coming days we will once again enter into negotiations about Pavlyuchenko. We need attacking players, especially a forward."

Meanwhile, the player's agent Oleg Artemov said: "Having the coach's trust, the player's performance and Tottenham's qualification for the Champions League are three major factors why Pavlyuchenko has remained in England.

"Now we can say with confidence that he has adapted to the championship. Roman is ready to fulfil his contract. But so say there will be no more negotiations would be categorical and incorrect.

"Lokomotiv, judging by the words of (coach Yuri) Semin and Naumov are going to sign a strong forward this summer - and will certainly not be averse to resuming negotiations on the transfer of Pavlyuchenko."
