thumbnail Hello,

The Russian midfielder's father and agent has claimed that Spurs want the 22-year-old but warned his son about the dangers of making a rash move to a big European club

Tottenham are interested in signing Russia midfielder Alan Dzagoev from CSKA Moscow according to the player’s agent and father.

The 22-year-old impressed at Euro 2012, scoring three goals in the group stages for Dick Advocaat’s side, but couldn’t stop the team from crashing out of the tournament in their final game of the group stage after losing to Greece.

Dzagoev’s agent and father, Tariel, has stated that there are plenty of offers for the playmaker to ponder, including one from Spurs.

He has warned his son of the dangers of making a poor decision after watching Yuri Zhirkov fail to make an impact following a big money move to Chelsea.

Dzagoev's father said, as quoted by the Daily Mail: "I don't know if he will stay at CSKA. There are offers - from Spurs and other clubs.

"But I tell him not to hurry. Yuri Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench."

Having previously admitted that he would like a new challenge away from Moscow, Dzagoev will hope to have increased the interest in his signature with his displays in Poland and Ukraine.

Reports suggest a bid in the region of £15 million would be needed to secure his services but there is confusion as to when his contract with CSKA is due to expire.
