Emanuel MAMMANA is set to join Zenit St Peterburg.
Another Argentinian appears to be heading to Russia, more specifically to Zenit St. Petersburg. After signing midfielder Leandro PAREDES from AS Roma and forward Sebastian DRIUSSI from River Plate, it was only a matter of time before the Russian club signed an Argentinian defender. The defender being Lyon’s Emanuel MAMMANA.
The defender will be joining Zenit on a transfer which will cost the club €16 million. Now 21, MAMMANA is expected to undergo a medical later this week where he will sign his contract. The club is apparently also looking at another Argentinian forward, Emiliano RIGONI of Independiente. Roberto MANCINI looks to be building his mini Argentina team.
