Former Barcelona striker Maxi Lopez could be on the move to England next month.

FC Moscow president Igor Dmitriev expects clubs from England to enter the race for the club's 25-year-old Argentine ace Maxi.

The striker is wanted by Lazio and Gremio, the Brazilian club where he is currently on loan, but Dmitriev said: "Clubs from England and Italy are showing interest and he wants to play football in Europe. We don't object and are ready to negotiate."
