Spartak Moscow are eyeing Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo.

The Brazilian is available after spending last season on-loan at Galatasaray.

Spartak Moscow have made a bid worth €8.5m to buy Melo plus performance-related bonuses.

This is still below the €10m asking price put forward by Juventus, but is an improvement on the €6.5m offered by Galatasaray.
