Chelsea FC are closing in on a deal to sign CSKA Moscow star Aleksandr Golovin, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Blues sacked Italian head coach Antonio Conte last week before Chelsea FC appointed Maurizio Sarri as his permanent replacement at Stamford Bridge.

The new Chelsea FC boss has wasted no time completing his first deal after Jorginho moved to Stamford Bridge in a £57m deal at the weekend.

Chelsea FC will need to overhaul their squad following a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table last term.

The Blues have been linked with a swoop to sign Russia international Aleksandr Golovin following his impressive performances at the World Cup.

The 22-year-old had been attracting interest from Serie A giants Juventus but the Blues appear to be winning the race to sign Golovin.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol believes Chelsea FC are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Golovin to improve his options in the middle of the park.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Sky Italy: Chelsea close to agreeing deal to sign CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin”

Chelsea FC won the FA Cup last season thanks to a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Wembley.

The Blues are facing the prospect of a season in the Europa League following their fifth-placed finish.
