Aleksandr Golovin

Chelsea have been tentatively linked with a move for CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin.

If you’re unfamiliar with the what Golovin is capable of, we get the feeling you’ll be well-accustomed by the end of the World Cup in his home nation.

It may come as a surprise to some that Golovin is still playing his football at the VEB Arena. He’s been continually linked with a move to Western Europe in recent seasons.

He has proven himself capable to succeed in a far tougher league than it’s given credit for. Not only are players forced to battle against the elements during harsh winters, but the UEFA coefficient actually ranks Russia sixth in Europe.

The transition into one of Europe’s top five leagues should be a fairly straightforward one for a player as talented as Golovin. Could he be given a chance to further his career at Stamford Bridge? It’s not out of the question.

During a report by Calciomercato claiming that the 22-year-old has been offered to Juventus, they note that Chelsea are thought to be interested in signing him. How genuine our interest is remains to be seen, but he’d be a more than logical target.
