Hubocan, 27, has impressed in this season's Europa League and has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Russia, with clubs from Italy thought to be at the top of his list. However, it has emerged that the Slovakia international is also a target for the Premier League.

"Newcastle and Tottenham are interested in him, but we had contacts with Inter Milan and Napoli too," Holescak told tuttomercatoweb.

"Tomas is a top defender, a player for big European teams. However he is happy in (Luciano) Spalletti's team: he's focused on the Russian Premier League and on the Europe League."
