Fulham forward Dimitar Berbatov is a summer transfer target of big-spending Zenit St. Petersburg, according to talkSPORT.

The Russian champions’ primary target is understood to be Werder Bremen’s Marko Arnautovic, but they will turn to Berbatov if negotiations with the German side flounder.

Zenit were close to signing the 32-year-old last year after it emerged his career at Manchester United was over.

But Fulham acted quickest, and a £5million fee was agreed.

Manager Martin Jol now has a fight on his hands to keep the Bulgarian at Craven Cottage next season, with Zenit once again expressing an interest.

Berbatov has struck 13 goals in 28 Premier League matches this campaign, proving that he is still a great asset despite his tender years.

The hitman found opportunities limited at Old Trafford but a string of impressive performances in west London have helped revive his career.

It is not known whether Berbatov – who has scored 48 goals for his country – is interested in a move to northern Europe, but hefty wages and the lure of Champions League football would certainly sweeten any deal.
