The Russian Premier League side are eyeing a potential summer move for Samuel Umtiti.

Having struggled with injuries throughout the season,

Samuel Umtiti

has featured in only 10 La Liga matches under

Ronald Koeman

. The French defender has found himself behind

Oscar Mingueza

and

Ronald Araujo

in the pecking order and the

Catalans

are reportedly open to offers for the player. The 27-year-old’s contract at Camp Nou will expire in 2023, but the Blaugrana are expected to accept a fee of around €8m. According to

Mundo Deportivo

,

Zenit Saint Petersburg

are interested in a summer move for the defender and they have already reached out over a potential transfer. Koeman’s side are expected to compensate for the departure by signing Manchester City defender

Eric Garcia

on a free transfer in the summer.
