CSKA Moscow have reportedly named their price for Chelsea and Arsenal target Aleksandr Golovin – and it’s incredible affordable.
The World Cup often provides a platform for lesser known players to establish themselves as household names.
Golovin seized said opportunity with a superb performance during Russia’s 5-0 demolition of Saudi Arabia. During the game, the 22-year-old bagged the below free-kick.

According to Football London, both Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in signing Golovin, but it’s Juventus who are currently leading the race for his signature.
The report claims that CSKA have issued a €25M asking price, which works out at around £22M. That’s incredibly cheap for a player with his sky-high potential.
Chelsea are in real need of some more creativity in midfield. By pursuing Golovin, we could save some of our transfer budget without having to compromise on quality.
We hope that our interest in signing him is genuine. It would be an incredibly shrewd acquisition by a recently incompetent board.
