After just a year in North London, it would appear that Roman Pavlyuchenko wants to leave Tottenham.
The Russian striker has struggled for first team football this season, with Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch all above him in the pecking order at White Hart Lane.
Speaking today, Pavlyuchenko had this to say : “No footballer likes being on the bench game after game. I could lose my place in the Russia squad ahead of the 2010 World Cup. I’m ready now to listen to offers from other clubs.”
The 27-year old was linked with a move to both Villarreal and Roma earlier this summer, however for whatever reasons nothing ever materialised. Following today’s comments, I would be pretty confident that Pavlyuchenko won’t be wearing the white of Spurs this time next week.
There is no doubt that on his day, Pavlyuchenko was a really decent striker but unfortunately for him, he could not reproduce his best form on a consistent basis.
