Lokomotiv Moscow and Espanyol are chasing Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The People says the Russian is set to slip further down the pecking order at White Hart Lane with the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from Manchester City. And ambitious Loko are ready to slap in an £8million offer for the 29-year-old and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp may be keen to cash in.

But La Liga side Espanyol would like him to move to Spain on a loan deal - and have told Spurs they will pay his entire wage bill.

Pavlyuchenko is thought to be interested in the prospect of Spanish football and indications are that Spurs will allow Espanyol to talk to the player.
