The gap between themselves and Arsenal may have lessened in recent weeks but there is some good news for Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as talkSPORT claim they could be set to land one of their top targets.
After missing out on Joao Moutinho in the summer, Lilywhites boss Andre Villas-Boas has been desperate to sign a playmaker and feels he may have found one in Alan Dzagoev. The 22-year-old is currently under contract at CSKA Moscow yet the Russian club are already considering his replacement.
Whilst this may be good news for Spurs, it is less so for Liverpool and West Ham United as it is one of their targets that CSKA are considering landing in order to replace the playmaker. Dutch international Eljero Elia is currently making more than a little bit of an impression for Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga playing week in, week out following a difficult move to Juventus and CSKA are keen to land the player should AVB get his wish and take their current star away from the Russian capital.
For their part, both Liverpool and West Ham are willing to fight it out for Elia and would not let him move to Russia without a fight.
Can Spurs land top target Alan Dzagoev this summer? Rate this rumour below.
