Zenit St Petersburg are eyeing a big-money move for Tottenham striker Peter Crouch.

Zenit St Petersburg are eyeing a big-money move for Tottenham striker Peter Crouch.

The Daily Mail says the wealthy Russian club's new boss Luciano Spalletti is determined to land an imposing centre-forward and is said to be a huge admirer of the 6ft 7in England star.

Zenit are keen on a move for Roman Pavlyuchenko but will look at other targets if the Russia international's price tag is much above £10million.

However, their attention will stay at White Hart Lane, according to reports in Russia, with Zenit prepared to offer Crouch double his wages and the lure of Champions League football in a bid to pull off the unlikely switch.
