Chelsea FC are keen on a deal to sign Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Peter Graves.

The Blues are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as the west London side look to bolster their squad ahead of Maurizio Sarri’s first campaign at the club.

Chelsea FC have already signed Jorginho so far this summer but the Blues are likely to further add to their squad before the transfer window closes on 9 August.

The west London side have been credited with an interest in bringing Russia international Golovin to Stamford Bridge this summer as they look to bolster their attacking options ahead of the new season.

And Sky Sports News reporter Graves seems to have confirmed that the Blues are keen on a deal to bring the attacker, who sparkled for Russia at the World Cup, to west London this summer.

Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, Graves said: “Another player we think Sarri and Chelsea want to bring in is CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin.”

Chelsea FC appointed Sarri as their new manager earlier this month after they opted to part company with Antonio Conte.

The Blues finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and won the FA Cup in Conte’s final campaign in charge last term.
