Rubin close in on Villarreal’s Samu?

Javi Gracia’s Rubin Kazan are understood to be closing in on the signature of Villarreal attacker Samu Garcia.

Samu played just 16 times in La Liga for Villarreal last season, and Marca reports he is on the verge of reuniting with Gracia, the 25-year-old having begun his professional career under the Coach at Malaga.

The newspaper cites sources close to the deal, who claim negotiations are well under way and could be concluded in the next few days.

Samu scored five goals in 32 appearances for the Andalusians in the campaign before his move to El Madrigal alongside Samu Castillejo.
