Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for Russian ace Alan Dzagoev, according to the player's agent.

Tariel Dzagoev, who is the player's father as well as representative, revealed that Spurs have made an offer for the CSKA star, but warned that there are many clubs keen to sign the playmaker.

The Russian scored three goals at Euro 2012, and was his side's standout performer as they crashed out, somewhat surprisingly, at the group stage. The attacking midfielder's performances in Ukraine and Poland stoked speculation that he could quit Russia for one of Europe's premier leagues, and Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea have all scouted the youngster.

But, according to the Daily Mail, Dzagoev's agent admits Spurs have already tabled an offer for the player.  Tariel Dzagoev said: "I don't know if he will stay at CSKA. There are offers - from Spurs and other foreign clubs. But I tell him not to hurry. Yury Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench."

There is confusion over whether the 22-year-old is available on a free transfer at the end of the year, but reports suggest Dzagoev may have signed a contract extension last year. In which case, Spurs can expect to pay at least £15million for the playmaker.

Tottenham are expected to appoint former-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas as their new boss this week, and Dzagoev could become the Portuguese coach's first signing at White Hart Lane.
