According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Alan Dzagoev is a target for Newcastle United ahead of the January transfer window.
Newcastle are determined to add quality in the new year, and they believe Dzagoev would bring a lot of their squad.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has been in fine form this season, and he has been a major reason why CSKA Moscow currently sit at the top of the Russian Premier League.
Newcastle are currently in the relegation zone, but they believe with a few additions they will be able to climb the table.
The North East outfit have lacked creativity this season, but they believe that Dzagoev could increase their attacking threat considerably.
The attacking midfielder is said by the Mirror to be available at around £10 million.
The Russian international has shone at recent major international tournaments, and he has also stood out in his nation’s top flight for a number of years.
If Dzagoev does move to Newcastle, he is likely to go straight into Steve McClaren’s side’s starting line-up.
