The famous opposite hitter Sokolov received a jumbo offer from a club competing for the Russian title with his current employers Zenit-Kazan, Gian Luca Pasini revealed in his blog. The leaders in the Russian Superliga would like to hire Sokolov at the end of the season despite the fact that he has a 3-year contract with Zenit worth 900,000 euros per season. Sportal.bg added that the club based in Novosibirsk isn’t the only one interested in Sokolov’s services. His former club Cucine Lube Civitanova from Italy is also in the race for his signature, although the information has so far been denied by the world and European champions.
The same source added that Zenit see the Pole Bartosz Bednorz from Leo Shoes Modena (Italy) as Sokolov’s replacement in case Bulgarian really leaves them. Bednorz would be paired up with the Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth, who’s getting closer to sign a new contract with the club from Kazan.
