Premiership clubs are set to run the rule over Spartak Moscow's 6ft 3in Austrian centre-back Martin Stranzl tonight.

Spartak face Tottenham in their UEFA Cup tie at White Hart Lane and Stranzl is a target for several Premiership clubs, plus Rangers.

Spartak general director Valery Karpin admits they are ready to talk to any interested teams but Rangers will face competition next month from Everton, West Ham and Fulham for the former 1860 Munich and Stuttgart star, who has been capped 51 times for Austria.
