Arshavin deal would delight Roman

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko admits he would welcome the arrival of Russia team-mate Andrei Arshavin at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham discussed a deal for Arshavin in the summer but a fee was not agreed and he has remained with Zenit St Petersburg. And although Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had previously suggested there will not be much money to spend for anyone next month, Pavlyuchenko would still relish Arshavin's arrival.

"Yes of course, I would very much like that," said the striker. "I haven't talked to him and all I know is that Arshavin wants to join a good European team."

In the meantime, Pavlyuchenko is looking to build on the seven goals he has netted since arriving from Spartak Moscow at the end of the previous transfer window.

The deal was seen as a panic buy in the wake of Robbie Keane leaving and Dimitar Berbatov angling for a move, but the 26-year-old has gradually adapted to his new surroundings.

"I feel very comfortable, I am very happy about everything," he said.

"I knew about English football before, I knew that it was different from Russian football so I expected things to be different, so I prepared myself for it."
