Tottenham are gearing up for a January swoop for Russian international Alan Dzagoev, according to Russian website

Dzageov shone for his country during Euro 2012, scoring three goals to make him joint top scorer in the tournament despite Russia’s early exit.

Spurs were linked with a move for the attacking midfielder over the summer, but were said to have been put off by CSKA Moscow’s £25 million asking price.

According to, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has made landing Dzagoev his priority in the January window in order to help bolster his team’s attacking unit.

Rafael Van der Vaart and Luka Modric both left White Hart Lane in the summer, and while the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey were bought in Spurs still look somewhat short of a creative midfield player.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas attempted to land Porto’s Joao Moutinho on deadline day but missed out, while a deal for Brazilian international Willian also failed to material
