Zenit in contact with Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti

Zenit St Petersburg have expressed interest in Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

The France international has been on Barca's transfer list since the end of last season, but has generated little interest.

Umtiti has managed just six appearances this term - all from the bench - but Zenit are prepared to move for him this summer.

Sky Italia says Zenit are in contact with Barca and Umtiti, but the player is hesitant over accepting a move to Russia.

Should he agree, Umtiti would be reunited with former teammate Malcom at Zenit.
