Zenit St Petersburg officials have flown out to Turin to discuss the possible signing of Milos Krasic from Juventus.
Although the January transfer window has closed in the peninsula, Italian clubs can still sell players to Russian teams until 24 February.
According to La Stampa, Zenit have sent representatives to negotiate terms with the Italian giants.
It is being claimed that Zenit, bossed by former Roma tactician Luciano Spalletti, are ready to offer €10m for the right-winger.
Juventus director general Beppe Marotta will ask for closer to the €15.5m he paid to sign the Serbian from CSKA Moscow in 2010.
Krasic, 27, has scored one goal in seven Serie A appearances this term. He’s started just four of those games.
