CSKA Moscow’s Alan Dzagoev is reportedly on the radar of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Alan Dzagoev from CSKA Moscow this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Spurs have been “offered the chance to revive interest” in the 24-year-old attacker, who will cost £16 million in transfer fee.

The North London outfit were reportedly interested in recruiting the Russia international in 2012 and then 18 months ago.

However, The Daily Mail claim that the Tottenham bosses are “unsure where he could fit into their squad”, although he is allegedly “well liked by staff”.

Dzagoev is a versatile attacker, who can play as a second striker, as a playermaker or on the left side of midfield.

Tottenham do not need a creative player at the moment, but they do need at least one striker for the 2015-16 season.

Dzagoev, though, is not the answer to that problem, as he is not an out-and-out striker and is not going to score too many goals.

Moreover, there will be doubts if the former Krylya Sovetov-SOK star can be a success in the Premier League.

It would be best for Tottenham if they do not pursue Dzagoev this summer, especially if he costs £16m.
