Published Add your comment

Tottenham will be keeping a keen eye on Senijad Ibricic and Alan Gatagov as Lokomotiv Moscow travel to England, it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, the north London club will send scouts to run the rule over the Russian Premier League pair when Lokomotiv take part in a pre-season tournament at Dean Court.

Npower League One outfit Bournemouth - who are hosting the EC Group Cup - and a side from the Glenn Hoddle Academy make up the rest of the tournament, where Spurs representatives will be watching intently.

Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell confirmed Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had requested passes for his colleagues, who will file a report upon their return to White Hart Lane.


"Harry has called and asked if we can sort them out with tickets," said Mitchell.

"We have spoken about their current player comings and goings and he thinks the Russian Premier League is full of untapped talent.

"There are a couple of hot prospects in the Lokomotiv ranks he has particular interest in."

Twenty-five-year-old Bosnia international Ibricic - who joined Lokomotiv in January - is a versatile midfielder, able to work centrally, out wide or behind the striker.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old midfielder Gatagov is a star of Russia's under-21 side.
