Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva is a transfer target for Russian club Spartak Moscow, according to reports in his native Portugal.
Silva has spent the past 18 months on loan at Monaco and is entering the final year of his contract with the Foxes.
Portuguese media outlet O Jogo reports that Spartak have made a bid for the 31-year-old.
Leicester are likely to want to offload Silva this summer to earn back some of the £22m fee spent on him three years ago.
After an initial delay to the start of his career at the King Power Stadium after documents were filed 14 seconds too late, Silva made 21 appearances for the club.
The European Championship winner has previously spoken about a possible return to former club Sporting Lisbon, and recently revealed that Monaco were keen to retain his services until the coronavirus pandemic happened.
“I still have a year contract with Leicester so I’m in a better position than some players,” Silva told France Football.
“This is a positive point. But what just happened has once again proved to me that nothing was ever done in football. In any case, not before things are written down.
“Monaco had expressed the wish to keep me in its next squad. In any case, this is what the leaders had told me. But during the crisis, the club informed me of its change of decision.
“This is something that has me surprised. It surprised me because I adapted very well and thought I had given my services at a time when the club was in the throes of big difficulties.
“When I arrived, the club was second to last! I took this risk because I wanted to play again. It immediately matched with people and I would have liked to continue here.
“Maybe the project has changed? I do not know. I do not know which project they have chosen. A lot of big names have left. I don’t really know which direction the club is taking and what its new goals will be.”
Silva added that he planned to hold talks with Leicester about his future – and would be open to playing in a different country.
He said “Why not (go to a new league)? In any case, I don’t really have a preference for countries.
“What interests me is to evolve in a winning project, in a winning team.”
