Zenit St Peterburg coach Luciano Spalletti is eyeing former protege Alessandro Matri.

The former Cagliari striker is struggling for minutes at Juventus and Spalletti is keen to bring him to Russia, says Processo di Biscardi.

Zenit are preparing an €18 million offer for Juve, where GM Beppe Marotta would seriously consider parting with Matri for such money.
