Reading star attracting Russian interest
The Russian forward has failed to impress at the Madejski Stadium this term after securing a move to the Premier League new-boys last summer.
The 29-year-old has scored just five times in the league this season following his move from Stuttgart at the start of the campaign.
The Royals could also be keen to get rid of the striker as they would struggle to afford his £65,000 a week wages should they drop into the Championship at the end of this season.
The manager-less club are currently seven points from safety following a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.
Pogrebnyak joined Reading with high expectations following a successful short-term loan spell with Fulham at the end of last season.
He scored an impressive six goals in 12 league games which prompted a mini-transfer scramble for his signature in the summer.
