Ansaldi seeks to leave Russia

Liverpool and Atletico Madrid have registered their interest in Rubin Kazan full-back Cristian Ansaldi, according to the player's agent.

Ansaldi, 24, has been linked with a number of top clubs around Europe after some impressive showings in Russia, and he made his debut for Argentina in 2009.

However, agent Pedro Aldave claims Ansaldi - capable of playing at right-back and left-back - is seeking a move to the Premier League, Serie A or La Liga as he believes it would boost his chances of becoming a regular for his country.

He told calciomercatoweb.it: "There has been some informal market interest from Liverpool and Atletico Madrid.

"I think he pays for the fact he plays in Russia, otherwise he would be in the national team. His contract with Rubin Kazan expires in December 2012 and he has no buy-out clause.

"Cristian wants to go away. He would love to play in England, Italy or Spain."

He added: "Last summer there was a deal with Manchester City and also some contact with Chelsea, but it all stopped because of a work permit. Now he has Italian citizenship and this could make things easier."
