Rich Russian Premier League outfit Anzhi Makhachkala are ready to make a move for Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita.

According to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, the 31-year-old is interesting Anzhi, who remain on the hunt for further big names to add to their squad.

Keita has featured numerous times for the Catalan giants this season and it remains to be see just how open Barcelona would be to allowing the Mali man to leave the Camp Nou.

However, if Anzhi do firm up their interest, Keita would be offered a highly lucrative deal far outstripping the amount he earns in Spain.

Anzhi are still aiming to ensure qualification for the Champions League and recently sacked coach Gadzhi Gadzhiyev for failing to get the best out of the club’s stars.

Keita is under contract with Barcelona until 2014.
