Rubin Kazan are chasing Porto's Cristian Rodriguez, with the Russian club reportedly ready to table a €13 million bid
Porto winger Cristian Rodriguez is in the sights of Rubin Kazan, with the Russian club ready to make a substantial bid for the Uruguayan, according to reports from the Portuguese press.

A Bola comments that the Eastern European side have the left-sided player on their radar, and are willing to offer €13 million to capture his services.

The 25-year-old signed for the Dragons after impressing at rivals Benfica, and has been part of Andre Villas Boas' side that have romped to an unbeaten league-winning campaign.

With Porto's side accepting widespread acclaim this season, a busy transfer window is expected, with their players and coach sure to be in demand.

Rodriguez is in line to feature in the trip to take on Villarreal on Thursday night in the second leg of the Europa League semi-finals, with the visitors taking an almost unassailable 5-1 lead to El Madrigal.
