Pavlyuchenko to have Roma talks

Roman Pavlyuchenko's agent expects the Tottenham striker's future to become clearer by tomorrow after he revealed he is set for talks with Serie A giants Roma.

Pavlyuchenko has made no secret of his discontent at White Hart Lane in recent weeks and has been linked with a number of clubs as he looks to secure first-team football ahead of next summer's World Cup finals.

Roma are favourites to win the race for Pavlyuchenko's signature and the out-of-favour striker could head to the Italian capital in January if upcoming talks prove fruitful.

"We're meeting Roma today or tomorrow for Roman," Oliver Wendt told "Roman wants to leave London and he wants to go to Roma. If Tottenham allow him to go, Roman could be a Roma player.

"Everything depends on the meeting we will have today or tomorrow with Roma.

"I had contact with the Roma directors last week too and they showed they were interested."

Liverpool and Spartak Moscow are reportedly among the clubs interested in the Russia international, who has slipped behind Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe in the pecking order at White Hart Lane.
