Anzhi Makhachkala live updates
Swansea hotshot striker Michu is attracting interest from Russia in the shape of Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkala, according to the Daily Mail. The 26-year-old Spaniard was the subject of previous bids from Russia before he joined Swansea in the summer.
QPR's maverick midfielder Adel Taarabt has pledged his future to the Loftus Road outfit, despite supposed interest from Anzhi and Barcelona, but he will be going against Harry Redknapp's wishes by travelling to the Africa Cup of Nations, the Mirror explains.
Mega-rich Russians Anzhi Makhachkala are eyeing a bid for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, the Sunday People reports. Anzhi are the only club prepared to offer the Blues a decent return on the £50m they paid Liverpool for Torres two years ago.
Wesley Sneijder's agent has cooled talk that Sneijder could leave Inter Milan for Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.
Soren Lerby dispelled talk of a January switch to Russia, saying: "Wesley doesn't want to go to Anzhi.
"I feel that these are just rumours and I don't know where they've come from."
Anzhi coach Guus Hiddink said his side's huge workload is the reason star striker Samuel Eto'o has flattered to deceive in two Europa League matches against Liverpool.
Asked by ITV's Peter Drury why Eto'o is no longer playing as an out-and-out striker, Hiddink explained: "We are in Europe and in the Russian Cup, which means from 1 July we're playing a game every three or four days.
"We're the team with the most air miles in Europe! So I must be a little bit prudent and cautious with Eto'o," Hiddink added.
Meanwhile the Dutchman said he was happy with Anzhi's 1-0 win over Brendan Rodgers' side in Moscow, but would have liked a more comfortable scoreline.
"It was a good result for us," he said, before adding: "Unfortunately in the second half we didn't finish it off."
