Tottenham striker becomes the latest big name to be linked with Arsenal

Arsenal have been linked with a flood of strikers in recent days and today, a surprise name has emerged.

Tottenham’s Roman Pavlyuchenko is the latest big name (literally) striker to attract interest from Arsene Wenger, with the his agent, admitting anything can happen in January.

Pavlyuchenko, 27, has barely played for Spurs this season, with Harry Redknapp opting to stick with the likes of Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane.

Since arriving from Spartak Moscow nearly a year and a half ago, Pavlyuchenko has made just 32 Premier League appearances for the north London club and if you believe the papers, he will definitely be leaving White Hart Lane this January.

With Arsenal captain Cesc Faregas admitting today that the club need a new striker, it makes sense to me that he Gunners are being linked with a player like Pavlyuchenko, however, as we know, very few players make the switch between the two clubs.

Usually, I would say that Pavlyuchenko isn’t Arsenal material, however considering the club’s current crisis in the striking department, I think Arsenal could do a lot worse than the Russian international. I am curious to hear what you Arsenal fans, and indeed Spurs fans have to say on this one. Have your say by leaving a comment below.
