Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has reportedly emerged as a Borussia Dortmund target.

The current Bundesliga champions join a host of clubs from across Europe, including Russia, in the race to sign Pavlyuchenko, who sees his future away from White Hart Lane.

"I do not have much playing practice at Tottenham Hotspur, although I am in very good physical shape," said the forward yesterday.

"I very much want to play football. That's why I need to start thinking now about moving clubs in the winter."

It's unclear if Harry Redknapp will be willing to allow the Spurs striker to leave in January after the north Londoners failed to secure the services of another forward in the summer transfer window despite Peter Crouch's exit.

With goalscoring a problem for Dortmund so far this term, the former Spartak Moscow forward has emerged as an £8 million solution to the troubles at Signal Iduna Park, according to reports in the German media.


Pavlyuchenko has featured in the Europa League for Tottenham Hotspur this term, but found Barclays Premier League opportunities hard to come by, with manager Redknapp preferring Jermain Defoe and Rafael Van der Vaart.

With the player eager to move, his Spurs future is in doubt and the north Londoners could look to cash-in on the 29-year-old.
