Pavlyuchenko agent: Crouch first to go

Roman Pavlyuchenko's agent thinks that Peter Crouch will be the striker most likely to leave Tottenham this summer.

Pavlyuchenko has been used sparingly by manager Harry Redknapp over the past few seasons and looked set to leave the club this summer to head back to Russia, but agent Oleg Artemov thinks that his client is not at the bottom of the pecking order.

Stoke, Sunderland and Everton are all believed to be interested in signing Crouch, while Pavlyuchenko is being made to wait over talks for a new contract as chairman Daniel Levy conducts the club's transfer business this summer.

"I expect to talk nearer to the transfer window's closing time," explained Artemov in the Daily Star. "At the moment he [Levy] is too busy. He needs to sell players and to buy new ones. Two or three teams are interested in Peter Crouch. So he is most likely to be the one of the five Spurs attackers to leave."
