Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko may leave Tottenham if the club's manager
Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko may leave Tottenham if the club's manager can find a buyer for him in the January transfer window, the Daily Mirror reported on Friday.

The paper said that Rednapp was unhappy with Pavlyuchenko's performance during last week's 2-1 Carling Cup win over Watford. Pavlyuchenko hit the crossbar when he was one-on-one with the keeper in the first-half, although he later converted a penalty.

Pavlyuchenko has scored seven goals in 14 games since joining Tottenham from Spartak Moscow in August for $28 million. Six of those goals have come since Rednapp took over as coach in late October.

Pavlyuchenko replaced Dimitar Berbatov at Tottenham when the Bulgarian striker was sold to Manchester United in the summer and the Russian will have a point to prove when Spurs host the European club champions at home on Saturday.

Before buying Pavlyuchenko in August, Tottenham had several bids rejected for Zenit St. Petersburg forward Andrei Arshavin, but the Russia star's club coach, Dick Advocaat, has said he is "too good" for Tottenham.

Arshavin looks certain to leave Russia in the January transfer window, and has again been linked with Tottenham, as well as Glasgow Rangers, Real Madrid, Barcelona and a host of other clubs.

"It would be better for him to stay in St Petersburg than to go to London or Glasgow," the Mirror quoted the Dutch coach as saying. "Tottenham has a fine reputation but I doubt that Arshavin will want to move there."

"I do not want to offend Roman Pavlyuchenko, but in my opinion Arshavin is a much classier player. He needs to move to a really great club. He didn't show his best form recently. For St. Petersburg he doesn't perform as strongly as he used to," said Advocaat.
