Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Prudnikov (Russian: Александр Александрович Прудников; born 24 February 1989) is a Russian football player. He plays for FC Anzhi Makhachkala.


On 8 April 2007, he made his debut for Spartak first team, scoring a winning goal in the game against Luch Vladivostok.

On 22 April 2007, Chelsea FC sporting director Frank Arnesen while visiting Moscow told the Russian sports newspaper Sovietskiy sport after the match against FC Krylya Sovetov Samara, that he liked the way Prudnikov performed in the game. FC Spartak Moscow sold on loan the striker, already with Russia's national team moves to FC Terek Grozny.

On 15 July 2009, Prudnikov agreed to join Czech giants Sparta Prague on a one-year-long loan deal. However, the contract was ripped up after a half-year.[1]

On 31 March 2010, Prudnikov was loaned to FC Tom Tomsk.[2]

As of 21 June 2013, it was confirmed that Prudnikov was on trial with FC Rubin Kazan in order to try and win a contract. He travelled with the club to their pre-season tour of Austria and started up front in a pre-season friendly against FC Steaua București on 22 June 2013. He signed for the club not long after, and scored on his debut away to FK Jagodina in the UEFA Europa League.

On 16 July 2014, FC Dynamo Moscow announced signing Prudnikov on a 1-year deal.[3]
