Dynamo Moscow midfielder Mathieu Valbuena may leave the side for Lion. Rumours are ripe after head coach Stanislav Cherchesov was fired on the eve of the new season and scandals over alleged extortion by the club’s security service.
Valbuena scored 4 goals and made 11 assists in the previous season.
Dynamo Moscow finished fourth and was supposed to take place in the Europa League but was disqualified by UEFA over violations of the Financial Fair Play rules. Dynamo has been replaced by Rubin Kazan.
Italian defender Domenico Criscito may quit Zenit St Petersburg for Inter Milan. His agent refused to give a definite answer saying the player has not received any specific offer from the Italian club.
Burkina Faso’s Charles Kaboré has been tipped to move from Kuban to Spartak. However, the red-and-white’s new coach Dmitry Alenichev denied the club’s interest in the midfielder.
FC Lokomotiv Moscow goalkeeper Marinato Guilherme has been reportedly under the radar of FC Krasnodar that finished third last season. Russia-IC reported earlier that he is getting Russian citizenship, according to the TASS news agency.
Signed in mid-2007, Guilherme has become the first Brazilian goalie in Russian professional football. He has stayed with the club ever since and managed to win a place in the lineup after a major injury and two surgeries.
The fate of Alexander Kerzhakov, a former star of Zenit St Petersburg, is still up in the air. There’ve been reports he might move to Kuban like Andrey Arshavin, but nothing has transpired so far. Sports Minister Mutko told journalists Kerzhakov could go on to become a sports functionary.
As for the transfers that have already taken place, Russian forward Roman Pavlyuchenko has joined FC Kuban Krasnodar after quitting FC Lokomotiv Moscow over pay.
Earlier, Russia-IC reported that Pavlyuchenko was not going to extend his contract with the club, said Sovetsky Sport. According to the daily, Pavlyuchenko was not happy about the new pay which he said was cut by three times.
His contract is set to end on July 30. 
Pavlyuchenko moved to Lokomotiv in February 2012 from Tottenham. He played for the English club three and a half years scoring 42 goals in 113 appearances. He was signed while playing for Spartak Moscow in August 2008 for 17 million euro.
Pavlyuchenko will join another Russian forward Andrey Arshavin who was signed by FC Kuban Krasnodar after it became obvious the Zenit coach does not want him to play any longer.
Arshavin signed a one-year contract with the southern team that finished 10th in Russia’s top league last year.
Earlier, he complained about the amount of time he spent on the bench in St Petersburg.
Arshavin came back to Zenit St Petersburg after a frustrating stint at Arsenal where after a successful start he fell out with Arsene Wenger over his deteriorating shape and had to spend most of his time on the bench. He scored 30 goals in 133 matches for Arsenal.
Arshavin left Zenit in 2009 after helping the squad win the 2008 UEFA Cup and a stellar performance at Euro 2008, where Russia won bronze.
However, Arshavin has been in a poor form this season, so he was dropped to the Arsenal reserves a week before his leaving the club.
Earlier, Russia-IC reported that Dmitry Torbinsky signed a three-year contract with FC Krasnodar, which finished third this season. He is supposed to help the team led by Oleg Kononov to fill the gaps after Roman Shirokov went back to Spartak Moscow.
In an interview with the daily Sovetsky Sport, Torbinsky called Krasnodar a top class team and said he was happy to join the side where everything is in place, including the infrastructure, resources and engaged management.
Torbinsky will move from Rostov, where he played in 32 games since July 2014, to the city of Krasnodar. Torbinski made his debut in the Russian national team on 24 March 2007 in a game against Estonia and was called up to play for Russia in UEFA Euro 2008.
Torbinski came on as a substitute in the quarter-finals in a match against the Netherlands and scored a goal in extra-time to put Russia 2–1 ahead. Russia eventually won 3–1 advancing to the semi-finals. (Wikipedia)
