Russia's big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala are reportedly targetting a big money move for Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie.

Free spending Caucasus side Anzhi - backed by billionaire owner Suleyman Kerimov - hit the headlines this summer following the £22million signing of former Barcelona and Inter Milan star Samuel Eto'o.

Player coach Roberto Carlos told French TV show Canal Football Club “Anelka is not the only player,”

“Nene from PSG and Van Persie from Arsenal are players we are following. And Neymar? I talked to him.

“If Real, Barca or Manchester United cannot pay the transfer fee, we will pay it. Suleyman Kerimov can offer what he wants.

"We want to make a club the calibre of Real or Barca.

"We have the potential to have a strong team.

"We are already the best team in Russia and I am serious when I say that."
