Spurs striker 'most likely of five' to leave

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur striker Peter Crouch has been tipped to leave White Hart Lane first this summer.

The claims come from strike partner Roman Pavlyuchenko's agent, who suggests that interest in the England international will see Harry Redknapp cash-in on the forward.

"I expect to talk nearer to the transfer window's closing time," Oleg Artemov told the Daily Star.

"At the moment he is too busy. He needs to sell players and to buy new ones. Two or three teams are interested in Peter Crouch.

"So he is most likely to be the one of the five Spurs attackers to leave."

Stoke City, Sunderland and Everton have all been linked with Crouch in the transfer window, although it's the Russian forward who has been more heavily rumoured to be making a White Hart Lane exit this summer.

Club's from Pavlyuchenko's homeland are thought to have taken an interest in the Spurs striker, although SkySports claims Artemov is eager to hold talks with Daniel Levy over a potential new contract in north London.


Redknapp revealed last month that he would need to sell players before making new signings at Tottenham Hotspur, with a striker signing thought to be the manager's priority.

The claims come on the same day Robbie Keane is linked with a move away from Spurs, with the Republic of Ireland international suggested as a possible makeweight in a player-plus-cash deal for Chris Samba in The Sun.
