The 28-year old has been the subject of much transfer talk over the past few months and it now seems like a deal will be done with his former club Spartak believed to have offered £9.5million for his transfer as soon as possible.
Spartak's director of football Dmitri Popov said the return of the man they sold in September 2008 now relied on his current club.
"Now everything depends upon Tottenham. If they make just a step in our direction, the problem with Roman's transfer will be solved," Popov said.
"Some other teams want to sign him too. But as far as I know if Pavlyuchenko returns to Russia he would prefer to come back to Spartak."
