Stuttgart are considering a Bosman deal for Rubin Kazan midfielder Bibras Natkho, according to Izvestia.
The Israel international’s contract is due to expire at the end of the year, meaning he is free to negotiate a Bosman transfer with interested clubs.
Izvestia has revealed that Stuttgart are hoping to sign the player on a free transfer in January, just like several Russia’s top clubs.
However, Natkho does not appear to be keen on leaving Kazan and he is currently negotiating a contract extension with his employers.
Bibras Natkho joined Rubin in a low-profile move from Hapoel Tel Aviv in the winter of 2010, but he quickly established himself as a first team regular.
The 25-year-old went on to make no less than 92 Russian Premier League appearances, scoring 20 goals in the process.
He remains a key player for both club and country and has so far scored 4 goals in 28 Israel caps.
