Newcastle United are reportedly ready to spend £10m on Russia international Alan Dzagoev.

The Premier League side, who lie two points adrift of safety in the table following Monday’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom, are set to make their move for the CSKA Moscow midfielder in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old, who has 48 international caps for his country, has scored once and assisted three goals in 17 league games for the Premier Liga outfit this season.

Magpies boss Steve McClaren is keen on bolstering his squad during the New Year period in order to stave off relegation during his debut campaign in charge at St James’ Park.
