Chelsea FC have a genuine interest in CSKA Moscow star Russia international Aleksandr Golovin, Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

Golovin earned rave reviews for his performances at the World Cup with hosts Russia to put his name on the world stage.

The CSKA star helped Russia to reach the World Cup quarter-finals before a loss to finalists Croatia on penalties.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder has been linked with Serie A giants Juventus following his performances for the World Cup hosts.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth confirmed that Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri is keen to sign Golovin in the summer transfer window.

“Golovin is interesting Sarri,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“He was interested during his time at Napoli. They face competition from AS Monaco. Juventus had a £20m offer on the table that was rejected.

“It looks more likely that he is heading to Monaco.”

Sarri was confirmed as Antonio Conte’s replacement at Chelsea FC last weekend to start a new chapter at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley thanks to Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot.
