Chelsea FC are eager to sign Aleksandr Golovin before the close of the summer transfer window, reporter Michael Bridge has claimed.

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 Bridge confirmed that the Blues are interested in a deal to sign the Russia star this summer.

“He is a player they wanted before Sarri came in,” Bridge told the Transfer Talk podcast. “Maybe it’s an Abramovich signing.

“We understand they are keen to sign Golovin before the deadline. Chelsea still have work to do to get this one done. “

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.
