Russian international Alan Dzagoev is the latest player to be linked with a move to Spurs in this transfer window but unlike many of the current rumours, there appears to be some substance to this, with claims that an offer has been made. Dzagoev’s father and agent states that bids have been received for his son in recent days.
“I don’t know if he will stay at CSKA,” Tariel Dzagoev said. “There are offers – from Spurs and other clubs.”
The 22 year old shone at Euro 2012 and was joint leading scorer in the race for the Golden Boot – an award he may well have won on his own had it not been for Russia’s surprise elimination at the group stages.
However, Dzagoev senior suggests that for now, there is no rush to leave Moscow and cited the previous experience of Yury Zhirkov as a warning.
“But I tell him not to hurry. Yury Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench,” he added.
Dzagoev looks a seriously good prospect but at this stage might just be a possible alternative, should a deal for Gylfi Sigurdsson fall through.
