New Anzhi boss Guus Hiddink is keen to be reunited with Michael Essien.
The Dutch boss is now in charge of the Russian moneybags, who are seemingly linked with every half decent player that becomes available.
Chris Samba and Samuel Eto'o have already made the move to the delightful Dagestan, a place so dangerous the players only fly there for matches.
Hiddink is thought to have been alerted by the news that Andre Villas-Boas could be ready to let the Ghanian leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.
He has been out for the majority of the season with a knee injury, with question marks now hanging over his long-term fitness.
However, on his day Essien is one of the best box-to-box midfielders in world football and someone who would no doubt add to the continued and constantly improving Russian Premier Division.
