Well, we've been linked with enough players coming in this summer, so inevitably, one or two need to leave; today, it is our Russian forward that is the talk of speculation about a move away from N17 .Roman Pavlyuchenko has emerged as a target for Bundesliga side Stuggart.
Our Russian forward looks to have chances next season in the first team cut short after the re-arrivals of Jermain and Robbie in what turned out to be a long 18 month season for the forward. Harry had previously stated that Pav was in his plans for next season, but that was before we were set to sign Van Nistelrooy, Huntelaar and Luca Toni. Well we do need 5 or 6 strikers for next season, don't we.
The manager of Stuggart, Horst Heldt, told Stuttgarter Nachrichten: "Pavlyuchenko is an interesting player." He continued:
"His name has come up in discussions within the club." A lanky striker in the form of Dimitar Berbatov proved a success in Germany, and maybe Stuggart believe Roman could have a similar sort of impact.
I'd be disappointed if Pav left us. He had a long season and the tiredness really showed through towards the end of the season. Although, he showed signs of a clinical striker and everytime he scored in the Premier league, we won the game- this is a striker we could do with. His record in Russia speaks for itself and letting him go would be a bigger mistake then when we let Klinsmann leave to return home.
He can scored goals. Enough said.
