Apparently, Zenit St. Petersburg asked about Marvin Plattenhardt in the winter, but Hertha BSC didn't want to let him go.

The 27-year-old, who was linked with RB Leipzig in January 2018 and with Everton last summer, was apparently deemed too important to be sold.
However, Plattenhardt hasn't been as prominent for Hertha as in previous seasons, and to his own frustration, the left-back has even had to settle for the bench at times.
For example, the 27-year-old has made it clear that he was annoyed to be on the bench for Hertha's games against Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund in the first half of the season.
"It's not nice to watch two top games like those from the bench. It annoyed and irritated me a lot," Plattenhardt told Sport Bild in January.
Plattenhardt has made 19 appearances for Hertha this season with one goal and two assists to his name. His contract runs until 2023.
