Lazio defender Modibo Diakite could make a move to Anzhi Makhachkala this month, according to reports in Russia.
Sovetsky Sport have claimed that the French centre-back, who is out of contract in June, may move to the Dagestan club as the transfer window in Russia doesn't close until the end of February.
Stories have circulated recently that the 25-year-old will join Napoli at the end of the campaign on a Bosman.
But the Biancocelesti could look to make some money from his transfer and sell to Guus Hiddink's men.
Diakite's agent has already revealed this week that he has turned down the chance to join 'a Russian club' this year.
