Zenit want Krasic, Magpies pick Elia?

Juventus are still whittling down their squad with reports Milos Krasic is heading to Zenit, while Newcastle United request Eljero Elia.

The Bianconeri are eager to shake off some dead wood in the squad and raise more funds for transfer operations.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Krasic is in advanced negotiations with Russian side Zenit St Petersburg, who are coached by Luciano Spalletti.

However, Juve would prefer a permanent sale, whereas Zenit are hoping to have the out-of-form Serb on loan.

It would be a return to Russia for Krasic, who was signed from CSKA Moscow in 2010 for €15m.

There is also plenty of time for this deal to go through, as the Russian transfer window ends on February 24.

Italian clubs can buy up until 18.00 UK time on Tuesday January 31, but can continue to sell.

Juventus are considering a reported Newcastle United offer for Dutch winger Elia, who only joined in the summer from Hamburg.

It’s reported that Newcastle would like Elia on loan until the end of the season.
