Tottenham have quoted Newcastle a £14 million fee for the purchase of striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, according to the Daily Mail.

After Andy Carroll vacated the club for Liverpool in January, Alan Pardew has been searching for a striker to fill the void left by the England international.


Pavlyuchenko signed for Tottenham in 2008 from Russian side Spartak Moscow, and has scored 20 goals in 73 appearances for the side.

While the Russia international has insisted that he is planning to stay at Spurs, Newcastle are reportedly not perturbed and believe that with the right offer they can tempt Tottenham to sell.

Newcastle still have a great deal of the £35 million left over from Carroll’s sale, with the club spending just €5 million on French star Yohan Cabaye so far. Other signings Sylvain Marveaux, Demba Ba and Mehdi Abeid were all brought in on free transfers.

And while a portion of the £35 million will no doubt be spent on logistics and wages, Pardew is still on the look out for a striker to build Newcastle’s forward line, and Pavlyuchenko is reportedly edging closer to the top of his wishlist as the transfer window enters it’s final weeks.
