Blackburn Rovers midfielder Vince Grella is a target for Zenit St Petersburg.

TMW says Grella's representatives have been contacted by Zenit about the prospect of moving to Russia for the new 2010 season.

Zenit coach Luciano Spalletti is a big fan of Grella and tried to sign the Australia international while in charge of Roma.

The midfielder has failed to make an impact in England, where his stay has been blighted by injury.
