'Russian top club formally prepares bid for Groningen tastemaker Doan' FC Groningen can look forward to an offer for Ritsu Doan soon. According to CoolJapan Soccer, various sources report that Spartak wants to continue with Moscow in the hunt for the twenty-year-old midfielder. The Russian top club should put more than eight million euros on the table for the Japanese international. Spartak may still have competition, including from its own country. CSKA Moscow, which previously saw a proposal being rejected, can also submit a new and improved offer to FC Groningen, writes the Japanese medium . Reportedly, Southampton and Shakhtar Donetsk also showed an interest in Doan. The seasonmaker of FC Groningen was good for five goals and three assists in 32 Eredivisie duels last season. He and the team of coach Danny Buijs qualified for the play-offs for European football, but Vitesse was too strong in that. Spartak Moscow is the number five of last season in the Russian Premjer League. The club therefore enters the preliminary rounds of the Europa League. CSKA finished one place higher and is already assured of participating in that tournament. https://www.voetbalprimeur.nl/nieuw...an-fc-groningen-verlangt-ruim-8-miljoen-.html ------ I'm still surprised the interest for him isn't as great as I thought he would be.
