24-goal striker claims Tottenham made approach in January



Russian skipper Artem Dyzuba claims Spurs approached him in January

Russian striker Artem Dyzuba has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur made an approach for his services in the January transfer window.

As reported by Sport Express (h/t Sportwitness), the striker claimed to have received an offer from Spurs which was rejected by Zenit.

“When Harry Kane got injured, people contacted me about a move to Spurs. But Zenit refused the offer.”

The striker went on to state that he had conversations regarding the move but nothing materialized. Tottenham needed a striker following the injury to Harry Kane. The club eventually decided to sign Steven Bergwijn rather than a specialist striker.

Dyzuba has 13 goals and 11 assists in 26 appearances for Zenit this season. His contract with the Russian giants expires at the end of the season.
