Fulham’s top goal scorer Dimitar Berbatov is being linked with a move to Russian club Zenit St Petersburg.
The 32 year old has netted 13 times during this campaign since joining from Manchester United last summer, helping Fulham to a mid-table finish and away from a relegation battle
His masterful displays similar to those seen in his most prolific period at Tottenham have attracted interest from Russian giants Zenit who are reportedly preparing to make an offer for the player.
“I have heard of interest from Russian clubs,” Berbatov’s agent Emil Danchev said. “The Russian league is growing seriously, and should soon become one of the leading championships in Europe – so to play in that country would be interesting.
“Of course, much will depend on the decision of the Fulham hierarchy. But at the moment I do not know of any formal offers.”
Rumours of Berbatov moving away from Craven cottage have been fuelled by reports that the club are unlikely to have a budget anywhere close enough to that needed to reshape the squad and move forward over the summer.
The striker has another year left on his Fulham contract, and his future may depend on whether the club can land targets including Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone and Ajax midfielder Eyong Enoh.
