Pavlyuchenko wanted by Man City
Spartak chief Leonid Fedun revealed City are set to have Pavlyuchenko, 25, watched in their final game of the season this week as they face Zenit St Petersburg.
Fedun said: "I know City plan to send a scout."
The Russians are reluctant to let Pavlyuchenko go and could demand £10million.
And Fedun added: "If he carries on playing the way he is at the moment, he won't be going anywhere."
