CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin is expected to reject interest from Monaco and sign for Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.
If you weren’t aware of Golovin’s capabilities prior to the World Cup in his home country – you definitely will be now.
Golovin was Russia’s star performer as they marched into the quarter-finals. Tireless, inventive and mature – he has what it takes to succeed at this level.
He has been linked with a move to Chelsea for several weeks now. Yet, the move hasn’t materialised. We’ve failed to get it over the line.
That could be about to change. The Daily Mail claim that, despite interest from Michael Emenalo’s Monaco, Golovin is still expected to sign for Chelsea.
The report suggests that the deal would be worth somewhere in the region of £30M, which seems like a small price to pay for a player of his quality – and with his potential!
