Anzhi Makhachkala prepare €35m offer for Barcelona's Daniel Alves - report

Anzhi Makhachkala are preparing yet another shock transfer as the Russians are ready to offer €35 million for the services of Barcelona defender Daniel Alves, Sport reports.

The ambitious Dagestan side are on the verge of signing Samuel Eto'o from Inter after having reached a verbal agreement with the Giuseppe Meazza side and have now turned their attentions to the 28-year-old Alves as they continue to look to bolster their ranks.

Anzhi are hopeful that an offer in the region of €35m will be enough to lure the Brazil international away from Camp Nou and they are willing to pay Alves an annual salary of €15m.

Nevertheless, it's doubtful whether Alves would be interested in a move to Makhachkala as he signed a new contract with Barcelona until 2015 back in March.

Anzhi Makhachkala have already secured the services of high-profile players such as Roberto Carlos, Jucilei, Diego Tardelli, Mbark Boussoufa, Balazs Dzsudzsak and Yuri Zhirkov in the past few months.
