Reports: Chelsea On Verge Of Signing Russia's World Cup Star

Reports: Chelsea On Verge Of Signing Russia's World Cup Star
By Gavin Cooney Updated

We interrupt this World Cup broadcast with some transfer tattle. According to reports in the Daily Telegraph, Chelsea have opened talks with Russia's breakout star of the World Cup group stages, Aleksander Golovin.

It had been expected that the CSKA player would be off to Juventus, but reports today suggest that Chelsea have stolen a march on the Italian champions and have opened talks with the Russian club regarding his transfer.

He is expected to cost in the region of £27 million, which given the level of promise he has shown at a World Cup (against admittedly fairly shite opponents) seems like pretty good value.

Even more so when you consider another line in the Telegraph report: Chelsea want to sell Danny Drinkwater and value him in the region of £30 million.

The Daily Mail have the same story, with the addition of interest in Golovin from Arsenal and a claim that Chelsea are also interested in signing Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund.
