The Evening Standard, as quoted by theDaily Express, is reporting that the Blues are interested in a deal to sign CSKA Moscow attacker in the summer transfer window.

Golovin announced himself on the world stage with a goal and two assists in Russia’s 5-2 win against Saudi Arabia in their World Cup opener.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
