Zenit St Petersburg have reportedly offered €30m for Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul, also a target for Leeds United, but it’s not enough.
The Argentina international had been widely expected to leave Udine this summer after four years at the club.
Leeds United were the favourites, while Tuttomercatoweb claim Zenit have now upgraded their proposal to €30m.
However, Udinese are holding out for closer to €40m for the 26-year-old, who can play in a variety of midfield roles.
