Anzhi Makhachkala (the emerging European team from Russia) is expressing an interest in acquiring Inter Milan right-back Maicon during the January transfer window. Anzhi has made Maicon a top priority after signing Samuel Eto'o this year.

Russian sports reporting agency Itasportpress announced this news, which was published on Goal.com. Maicon has been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid in the past, but it has never materialized.

Maicon's contract with Inter Milan is set to expire at the end of the 2012-2013 Serie A season. The contract also has an exit clause in which the club acquiring Maicon would have to pay Inter Milan just over $20 million.

Anzhi Makhachkala is owned by Suleiman Kerimov, who has the money to purchase players for his club. Anzhi has signed players such as Roberto Carlos, Yuri Zhirkov, Jucilei da Silva and Diego Tardelli to the club.

Anzhi has also been linked with attempting to sign Frank Lampard from Chelsea and Steven Gerrard from Liverpool. It remains to be seen what will transpire in the latest saga from Anzhi Makhachkala.
