Akhmat Grozny fullback Milad Mohammadi has been offered to Newcastle United.
The Daily Mail says Newcastle have been offered Iran defender Mohammadi, 25, from Akhmat Grozny.
Rafa Benitez is desperate to strengthen his squad in a bid to avoid the drop, and securing cover at left back has been one of his priorities for a number of windows now.
Paul Dummett is the only recognised first-team player in that position, but the Wales international has missed the club's last four matches with a hamstring problem.
Mohammadi is currently part of Iran's squad participating in the Asian Cup. They face Marcelo Lippi's China in the quarter finals on Thursday afternoon.
