Anelka and Van Persie on Anzhi radar

BY foxsports • October 10, 2011

Player-coach Roberto Carlos has revealed yet more Premier League stars are on Anzhi Makhachkala's radar, with Nicolas Anelka and Robin van Persie in the frame.

The big-spending Russian club hit the headlines in the summer when they made Samuel Eto'o the highest-paid player in world football with a deal worth in excess of £250,000-a-week.

Billionaire Russian Suleyman Kerimov is financing the club and despite already making huge investment, they are still looking for more big names.

Having already been linked with England coach Fabio Capello, along with midfielders Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, Roberto Carlos admits they have other targets in the Premier League.

"Anelka is not the only player. Nene from PSG and Van Persie from Arsenal are players we are following," the Brazilian told TV show Canal Football Club.

He also confirmed that the club are still tracking Brazilian wonderkid Neymar.

"Neymar? I talked to him. If Real, Barca or Man United cannot pay the transfer fee, we will pay it. Suleyman Kerimov can offer what he wants."
