Daniel Levy was hoping to recuperate most of the £13.8m he spent on bringing the 28 year old to White Hart Lane but with Zenit the only club tabling a firm offer despite interest from a host of other clubs, it looks like Spurs may just accept the bid.
Birmingham are also considering a move for the former Spartak Moscow forward but Spurs are reluctant to sell him to another English club and Pavlyuchenko himself is thought to want to leave the country.
The forward came to North London with a big reputation having impressed at Euro 2008 with Russia but he has failed to live up to expectation falling behind Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane in the pecking order. This season he has made just 7 appearances scoring 1 goal leading him to launch a scathing attack not only on the club but also on Harry Redknapp leaving him available this month if the right offer comes along.
