Russian outfit Zenit St. Petersburg are the latest club being linked with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Negredo.
The Spaniard's future is seemingly over following the Madridistas' expensive close-season captures of Karim Benzema, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Xabi Alonso, with fellow forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar having already departed for AC Milan.
The 23-year-old bagged 32 league goals in 70 outings for Almeria after arriving from Real's B team in 2007, with the youngster's form leading him to be linked with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the past.
Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart and Serie A side Roma are also believed to have expressed an interest in Negredo, with Real reportedly keen on securing around £15 million for the forward's services to help balance their books.
And, according to Spanish daily AS, 2008 UEFA Cup winners Zenit are now weighing up a move for the front-man, with the Russian side - who recently lost striker Pavel Pogrebnyak to Stuttgart. - willing to pay the striker €3.5 million-per-year.
