Reports from Russia claim CSKA Moscow are interested in Real Madrid’s Russia international winger Denis Cheryshev.
AS cites a story by Izvestia that says the 24-year-old is highly regarded in his native country and wanted by CSKA.
CSKA will therefore make ‘every effort’ to convince Madrid to let Cheryshev go in January and the player might be open to the switch.
Cheryshev is understood to want to nail down his place in the Russia side for Euro 2016 but may struggle to do so if he isn’t playing regularly.
His minutes will be limited at Madrid so CSKA could be a tempting option, while Sevilla, Valencia and a number of Premier League clubs also wanted Cheryshev over the summer.
Cheryshev was though convinced to stay, having been loaned to Villarreal last year, after being told he was in Rafa Benitez’s Madrid plans.
