Alan Dzagoev may be on the move to Tottenham Hotspur after his father and agent Tariel Dzagoev reported that Spurs are in contact with the 22-year-old Russian from CSKA Moscow.
Dzagoev is thought to cost in the region of £15m, but reports are unconfirmed whether the forward is out of contract or not.
Dzagoev started to gain a lot of attention from Premier League clubs after putting in some scintillating performances in the group stages of Euro 2012. The speedy Russian was equal top goal scorer in the competition with three goals and always looked threatening.
Previously Arsenal were understood to be interested in replacing Andrei Arshavin with his fellow countryman, however Dzagoev’s father said that their north London rivals, Tottenham are more likely to get their hands on the youngster.
"I don't know if he will stay at CSKA," Tariel Dzagoev is quoted by the Daily Mail. "There are offers - from Spurs and other clubs.
"But I tell him not to hurry. Yury Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench."
