Arsenal & Tottenham target could make €30m Serie A move

CSKA Moscow star Alan Dzagoev, a reported target for both Arsenal and Tottenham, could join Serie A side Roma in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old was one of the most impressive performers in the group stages at Euro 2012, but was unable to guide Russia through to the knockout phase of the competition.

According to, Roma have already made first contact with CSKA over a possible deal next summer, but the Russian club will not sell for any less than €30 million.

Giallorossi coach Zdenek Zeman has reportedly requested that the club's board sign Dzagoev next summer as a reward, should he guide Roma to the next edition of the Champions League.

Arsenal and Spurs, meanwhile, were both consistently linked with the versatile midfielder during the summer window and both Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas are likely to keep an eye on his situation in Moscow.

Creative reinforcements were high on the agenda for both Wenger and Villas-Boas over the last transfer period, and the former pulled off a coup to bring Santi Cazorla to Arsenal.

Spurs, meanwhile, failed in their pursuit of Joao Moutinho - identified as a replacement for Luka Modric - and may be more realistic suitors for Dzagoev than their north London rivals.
