Liverpool consider Pavlyuchenko loan deal
Thursday 12 November 2009
Want-away Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has emerged as a loan target for Liverpool.
The Russian has this week made it clear that he wants to leave White Hart Lane after seeing his first team opportunities dry up after the arrival of Peter Crouch in the summer.
Pavlyuchenko is desperate for the chance to impress Russia coach Guus Hiddink in order to gain a place in the national side should they qualify for the World Cup.
It has been reported that Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is aware of the situation and is now eyeing Pavlyuchenko as a solution to the Reds striking problems.
Benitez is unlikely to be given much funding in January and is likely to consider a loan striker as a solution, something that could benefit both Pavlyuchenko and Tottenham.
Asked if he wanted to leave Tottenham earlier this week, Pavlyuchenko said: "Yes, because it's impossible for me to stay in the present situation.
"I've been sitting on the bench for half a year now and because of that I've lost my place on the national team."
