The Bulgarian was linked with a move to Zenit St Petersburg during his time at Manchester United and rumours of renewed interest from Luciano Spalletti's side have resurfaced in recent weeks.

But representative Emil Danchev has assured the Bulgarian's current employers that any potential move depends on their actions.

"I have heard of interest in Berbatov from Russian clubs in the past and I still hear of them today," he told Izvestia.

"The Russian league is growing seriously and should soon become one of the leading championships in Europe so to play in that country would be interesting.

"Of course, much will depend on the decision of the Fulham hierarchy but, at the moment, I do not know of any formal offers."

Berbatov joined the Cottagers on the final day of last summer's transfer window and has scored 13 goals in 30 Premier League outings since.
