Artem Dzyuba will be considered by Tottenham Hotspur again this summer, according to Football London.

Dzyuba is set to become a free agent in the near future, and Spurs have been heavily linked with the striker before.

When Tottenham were chasing a number nine in January, Dzyuba came out and said that he had spoken about a switch to Spurs, and that he wanted to join, but no move materialised. 

“When Harry Kane got injured, people contacted me about a move to Spurs,” he said to Sport Express

“Of course I wanted to try at Tottenham Hotspur, but such thoughts visited me; what if it doesn’t work out? I understand that Zenit was not interested.”

Zenit, on that occasion, were not interested in listening to Tottenham’s bids for Dzyuba.

However, with the target-man set to become a free agent, Spurs could now deal directly with him.

Football London does suggest that Dzyuba is likely to receive interest from other clubs, but they must be encouraged that a deal could be possible, from his past comments.

If Dzyuba was to Spurs he could provide cover for Harry Kane and give Jose Mourinho’s side more power and aerial threat.
