Zenit make Matri enquiry

Zenit St Petersburg are the latest club to be associated with available Juventus striker Alessandro Matri.

Sky Sport Italia have claimed that the Russian club have made an enquiry with the Italian giants regarding the forward.

Juventus are ready to listen to offers for their forwards following the summer arrivals of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City and Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente.

They want to reduce their six attackers – which also include Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco – to five.

Matri has also been linked with Premiership duo Everton and Liverpool, as well as capital outfit Lazio.

Sky have underlined that no bid has been tabled yet by Zenit for the Italian international.

Matri, almost 29, joined Juve in January 2011 from Cagliari. He has scored 29 goals in 83 games for the Turin giants.
