There are reports Socceroo right-back Ivan Franjic could be on the move from Russia to Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb.
A report in the Herald Sun on Thursday revealed the Torpedo Moscow defender, who returned to action last weekend after an injury lay-off suffered in the latter stages of the recent Asian Cup, is being lined up by the club.
Croatian sports paper ‘Sportske Novosti’ ran a story this week linking Franjic with a move to Zagreb.
Franjic is contracted to Torpedo until 2017 but was linked with a move back to the Hyundai A-League late last year.
Meanwhile Chris Ikonomidis has suffered a setback at club level ahead of his first Socceroo camp next week, hit with a three-game ban for slapping an opponent last weekend.
The 19-year-old was given his marching orders inside 12 minutes against Latina in the Campionato Primavera Girone C, with Lazio going on to win 1-0.
Having been on the bench a few times with Lazio’s first team, the ban is a blow to Ikonomidis’ hopes of making a full debut before the end of the season, despite the red being a harsh decision based on the available footage.
But the pacy winger will still be eligible for the upcoming international friendlies against Germany and FYR Macedonia, with the ban only relating to club matches.
