Transfer FIGHT! Manchester United and Tottenham target Russian hitman

first_img Aleksandr Kokorin Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Dynamo Moscow forward Aleksandr Kokorin, according to reports in Russia.Both Premier League clubs are desperate to boost their attacking options and the Russia international is out of contract next summer.Moscow want to keep hold of Kokorin but are reportedly ready to listen to offers for the 24-year-old rather than let him leave for nothing in the future.While divisional rivals Zenit Saint Petersburg have made their interest known in the striker, United and Spurs are now set to rev up their pursuit of the former Anzhi star.And, according to Russian news agency TASS, both English sides are ready to show their hand in the coming days.Kokorin, who joined the Belo-golubye in 2013, has a release clause of £13.5m – a value which could tempt a big-name suitor to sign him during this transfer window. 1last_img
