Premier League clubs are ready to pounce for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Igor Denisov. The likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal are all monitoring the situation after Denisov and Alexander Kerzhakov were frozen out after criticising the wages of teammates Hulk and Axel Witsel.
Zenit coach Luciano Spalletti barked: "As for Denisov, the club stated its position precisely. Igor gave an interview, where he explained everything. There's nothing to add. As for Kerzhakov, he showed in a difficult moment for the club that he thinks only about himself.
"We don't want to take players who think only about themselves, and don't want to go forward with us. Their return to the starting lineup depends only on them themselves."
