Russian club Zenit St Petersburg are preparing an offer for Juventus midfielder Simone Pepe, according to reports.
Zenit boss Luciano Spalletti has requested the Italian international and a deal could be done before the window closes.
Although the Old Lady only completed the full signing of Pepe from Udinese this summer, he may be sacrificed at the right price.
It is being claimed that Zenit are ready to offer the Old Lady of Italian football €10m for the former Roma player.
Zenit targeted Juve stopper Leonardo Bonucci earlier this summer, but their €8m bid was rejected.
