Spartak Moscow are willing to pay Tottenham £10million to bring Roman Pavlyuchenko back to Russia.

Pavlyuchenko has been out of favour at White Hart Lane and fears losing his place in Guus Hiddink's World Cup squad without regular football, with Roma and Zenit St Petersburg among the other clubs linked with 27-year-old.

"We need a good striker," said Spartak coach Valery Karpin. "It's a bit too much. If the price was £10million we would seriously consider it."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp also has Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch competing for places in attack, with Pavlyuchenko down in the pecking order.

If Pavlyuchenko does depart, Real Madrid's Ruud van Nistelrooy was among the targets Redknapp looked at over the summer who is still available, as Klaas Jan Huntelaar has moved to AC Milan.

Brazilian side Internacional claim to have rejected a £14million offer from Spurs for midfielder Sandro, who is valued at more than double that amount by his club.

Meanwhile, full-back Pascal Chimbonda is in talks with Blackburn about a move to Ewood Park, while Olympiacos have been linked with a move to take Mexico forward Giovani dos Santos on loan.
