Anzhi are ready to swoop for Chelsea striker Demba Ba. The Mirror says Anzhi are ready to move in with a lucrative contract offer after the 28-year-old rejected the chance to go to West Bromwich Albion and former club West Ham United.

Anzhi have already moved quickly to take defender Christopher Samba back to Russia following the centre-back's unhappy spell at QPR.

Now they are set to swoop again for the former Newcastle and West Ham striker.
