Pavlyuchenko agent open to Milan move

Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko would be interested in a January move to AC Milan, according to the player's agent.

The 27-year-old joined Spurs from Spartak Moscow for £14 million a year ago, but now finds himself the fourth-choice front-man at White Hart Lane behind Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch.

Pavlyuchenko scored 14 times in 36 appearances in all competitions in 2008/09, including netting in every round of the Carling Cup apart from the final.

However, he has featured just three times in all competitions so far this term, with Russia national coach Guus Hiddink recently expressing his concern at the goal-getter's lack of action so far in 2009/10.

Reports have since linked the forward with a winter transfer window switch to AC Milan, with former Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar - a summer target of Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United - heading to North London as part of the deal.

And Pavlyuchenko's representitive, Oleg Artemov, has admitted that the prospect of the player joining the Italian giants is one that appeals.

"We are heading back to London, where we will meet Tottenham's directors to get some answers," he said on

"I spoke to a few friends in Italy, and soon I will see if the Huntelaar swap deal is possible or if it's just rumours.

"Of course, Milan would be an interesting proposition for everyone - the player, the agent and the club that sells."
