Birmingham City are willing to offer straight cash for Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Birmingham City are willing to offer straight cash for Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The Mirror says Brum boss Alex McLeish wants a burly forward to hold the ball up better and sees Pavlyuchenko,28, as an ideal target.

Brum are willing to pay up to £10m for the striker, who Spurs bought from Spartak Moscow in August 2008 for £13.8m.

Lens forward Aruna Dindane, on loan at Portsmouth, is another possible option upfront if he leaves the cash-strapped Fratton Park club.
