Tottenham have held talks with Spartak Moscow striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, BBC Sport understands.

The 26-year-old Russia international met representatives from the north London club last week, although no deal has been agreed yet.

The £15m-rated Pavlyuchenko impressed during Euro 2008, scoring three goals.

Spurs are also believed to be keen to sign his Russia team-mate Andrei Arshavin, although Zenit St Petersburg claim they have not been approached.

Arshavin, who also shone at Euro 2008, played against CSKA Moscow at the weekend and may yet remain at Zenit this season.

Tottenham boss Juande Ramos has already spent about £45m on transfer fees which has seen forward Giovani Dos Santos, midfielders Luka Modric and David Bentley and goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes arrive at the club this summer.

They recouped some of that money with the £20.3m sale of Robbie Keane to Liverpool, the £3.5m spent by Blackburn for keeper Paul Robinson and the transfers of Steed Malbranque, Pascal Chimbonda and Teemu Tainio to Sunderland.

It has also been widely reported that fellow forward Dimitar Berbatov will leave White Hart Lane before the start of the season.

The Bulgaria international did not appear in the 5-1 defeat of Leyton Orient on Wednesday and also did not feature in Monday's game at Norwich.

If Spurs were to sign him would this leave the door open for Berbatov to join United? Or do you think he is just a replacement for Robbie Keane?

I think he would be a better signing for Spurs
than Arshavin. Plus he is very like Berba so i
think it would pave the way for Berba to make
him move to us.

I agree Arshavin isn't an out-and-out striker where as Pavlyuchenko is, and with Robbie Keane gone thats what they need.

Although i rate Darren Bent i think he's a good player and apparently he scored 4 goals in a friendly the other day, so they may think about playing him a bit more.

EDIT: I'm sure i put this in TRANSFER TALK :S

I think it will be a good signing for them especially if berbatov comes to United. Arshavin would be a good replacement for keane and pavlyuchenko could replace berbatov
