The attacking midfielder, who currently plays for CSKA Moscow, impressed for Dick Advocaat’s men and scored three goals despite the eastern European powerhouses being eliminated in the group stages.
The latest Russia superstar is thought to be on the radar of a wide range of leading European clubs, and the playmaker’s father has revealed that there is an offer on the table from the north London outfit.
“I don’t know if he will stay at CSKA,” The Daily Mail haves his father Tariel as saying.
“There are offers – from Spurs and other foreign clubs. But I tell him not to hurry. Yuri Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench,” he concluded.
Meanwhile Andre Villas Boas is widely expected to be named as Harry Redknapp’s successor in the next week.
