Zenit step up Gattuso bid

Gennaro Gattuso is reportedly heading to Russia for a move to Luciano Spalletti's Zenit St Petersburg.

The Milan midfielder has now retired from the Italy squad and his future at San Siro remains unclear.

His contract expires in June 2012 and, as a 33-year-old, the club is unsure whether to offer an extension.

Gattuso had already been close to leaving Milan last summer with offers from England, Qatar and Russia.

According to today's reports in Italy, Zenit Coach Spalletti has asked his side to push on for Rino's signature.
