Ivorian striker Lacina Traore is likely to leave Anzhi Makhachakala in the January transfer window, according to his official representative.
One of just a handful of high-profile players to have remained at the club following drastic budget cuts, the 23-year-old is expected to leave the Russian side at the earliest opportunity.
He has already been linked with a number of high-profile clubs, including Juventus and Galatasaray, and his agent admits a January exit is on the cards.
“In case of a decent proposal that satisfies all the parties, Lacina can change clubs next winter,” agent Dmitry Selyuk told Izvestia.
“The demand for Traore both in Russia and in Europe is quite good.”
Lacina Traore made a name for himself at CFR Cluj, where he bagged 14 goals in 44 league appearances before joining Kuban in 2011.
After scoring 18 league goals in his first season at the club, the towering striker moved to Anzhi, where he has continued his rich vein of form.
Having netted 13 times in 27 league matches for the side from Makhachkala, the talented footballer looks set to leave for greener pastures.
