Anzhi show interest in Lavezzi

Russian giants Anzhi reportedly have Napoli forward Ezequiel Lavezzi on their summer shopping list.

The transfer rumour mill in Italy on Wednesday is suggesting that the club who signed Samuel Eto’o from Inter last summer will make another raid on Serie A.

Lavezzi is a player who forms a key purpose at the Stadio San Paolo, but he is not an untouchable within the squad.

The Argentine has a €31m release clause in his contract which would allow a transfer to take place should any club meet that figure.

Anzhi, it is being claimed, are prepared to offer that for the South American and they’ll table a tempting contract to the player.

Lavezzi, formerly of Genoa, is currently earning €2.2m a season in Naples. Anzhi will apparently offer him €6m a campaign.

The international striker, 26, has scored eight goals in 24 League games for Walter Mazzarri’s side this season.
