Tottenham Hotspur Signs Roman Pavlyuchenko For £14 Million

roman-pavlyuchenko.jpgTottenham Hotspur has announced that the club has reached an agreement with Spartak Moscow to sign Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko for a transfer fee believed to be £14 million.

The star striker who made a huge impression in Euro 2008 won’t be ready to play against Chelsea in the London derby today. His first match wearing a Spurs shirt will likely be the home game against Aston Villa on Monday, September 15.

While at Spartak Moscow, Pavlyuchenko scored 77 goals in 147 appearances, and has played 23 times for Russia scoring nine goals for his national side.

For many, Pavlyuchenko rose to prominence with his impressive displays at Euro 2008 including the goal he scored against Holland (see video clip below) and his thunderbolt shots from distance.

The 26-year old Pavlyuchenko joins a Spurs side alongside fellow strikers Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Bent.

To me, this is another massive signing by Spurs this summer after signing David Bentley, Giovanni Dos Santos and Luka Modric. The Russian striker was such a breath of fresh air this summer. He’s a born finisher who will take time to adapt to the English game. But in Pavlyuchenko, Spurs has signed one of the most promising players in Europe. Let’s hope he dazzles the Premier League viewers around the world.

    Great news…I was pulling for Roman over Arshavin all summer and hopefully he won’t make me look bad for doing so. He finds open space and makes himself available, which is something Spurs are lacking now with that terribly crowded midfield.
