According to a report in Sport Bild, Russian outfit Dynamo Moscow are considering making a move for highly rated attacker Kevin Kuranyi, currently under contract at Schalke 04.
The report suggests that the Moscow side are determined to add an extra attacker to their squad before the closure of the Russian transfer window and they have reportedly made Kuranyi their primary transfer target.
The 28-year-old attacker has an expiring contract at Schalke and is widely expected to leave the Gelsenkirchen side on a Bosman move at the end of the season.
Kuranyi was previously linked with Serie A side Juventus, but Dynamo Moscow appear to be desperate to hijack the Turin side's deal.
They are supposedly ready to offer Kuranyi an annual salary of €5 million net. However, it remains to be seen whether the former German international is interested in a Russian adventure.
