Leeds United and CSKA Moscow are keen to sign Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic on loan.
Evening Standard writer David Lynch is reporting that the Russian club are eager to add him to their squad as they prepare for life in the Champions League this season.
While The Hull Daily Mail are claiming that Marcelo Bielsa is keen to do a deal to sign Grujic on loan for the rest of the season as he looks to improve his options in Yorkshire.
The Championship club are reported to have made the Serbian international second choice as they seek to secure a temporary move for Mo Besic of Everton this month.
They may struggle to convince the former Red Star Belgrade man that he would be best served spending the season at Elland Road, however, after it was revealed that he had turned down other offers.
Premier League newboys Cardiff City were hoping to take him on loan again after he spent the second half of last season with them as they secured promotion from the Championship.
Another second tier club were also keen to do a deal to sign Grujic for the season, but he turned down the opportunity to become a part of Tony Pulis’ squad at Middlesbrough.
It is claimed that a move to Russia is the one Liverpool would prefer as it would give Grujic the chance to play in the Champions League at a side competing at the top end of their domestic division.
