Rafael Benitez is reported to be preparing a £15m bid for Russian left-back Yuri Zhirkov – who Chelsea were expected to sign this Summer.

The CSKA Moscow defender was expected to move to Stamford Bridge this Summer after months of rumours. But Benitez could be set to steal a march on his rivals with a swift move for the player heralded as ‘the Russian Ronaldinho’.

Andrea Dossena could be sold back to one of several interested Italian clubs after a disappointing season at Anfield despite goals against Manchester United and Real Madrid recently.

CSKA Moscow manager Zico has tipped his charge for a bright forward on the European stage.

“Zhirkov is a player of such high level, he would only show all his potential playing in such a strong competition as the English Premier League,” he said.
