Stuttgart are moving for Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The Daily Star says Stuttgart are planning a cheeky £9m bid for Pavlyuchenko.

Spurs are willing to listen to offers for the Russian but do not want to make a big loss on the striker.

They paid £14m for him when he joined the club from Spartak Moscow in 2008 and want their money back before he is allowed to leave.

Stuttgart general manager Horst Heldt said: "We want a very powerful striker and Roman Pavlyuchenko is a name we have taken into account."
