Liverpool are being linked with Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The Sun says Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has told manager Harry Redknapp he needs to sell before he can buy.

But the manager hopes to finance his January plans by flogging Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The Russian is attracting attention from Liverpool and it is understood Spurs will do business with the Anfield club even though the Reds are a major rival for a Champions League place next season.

Spurs paid £13.8m to land hitman Pavlyuchenko from Spartak Moscow but he has dropped to fourth-choice striker.
