FK Krasnodar are reportedly trying to bring Amin Younes on loan from Napoli and are hoping to close a deal before the transfer deadline later this month.
The 26-year-old was linked with a move away from the Partenopei last month and despite reported offers from Germany and Qatar, the price tag set by President Aurelio De Laurentiis was not met.
The German has stayed put, but his last match for the Azzurri came against Udinese during the start of December and he is looking for a way out.
Calciomercato.com has reported that Krasnodar could be his next destination and claims that the Russian club has presented De Laurentiis with a loan deal worth €1.5m.
They have until February 21, as the transfer window in the Russian Premier League is still open.
