Fedor Chalov TEAMtalk

CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov is on Arsenal’s summer target list, according to Sky Sports News.

The 21-year-old Russian international forward hit 17 goals and seven assists in 36 games last term and he scored against Arsenal in the Europa League in 2017/18.

Sky claim that Monaco and Sevilla are also keen on the Russian Premier League top scorer, who has three years left to run on his CSKA deal.

CSKA News reported in November that  Watford were ready to offer €5million for the forward, who’s value has soared since.

Chalov was a goalscorer in CSKA’s shock 3-0 win over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu the following month in December.

Before turning 21 he was then called up to the national team, making his debut against Belgium in March in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

Chalov, who has played in all the Russia youth age groups, broke into the CSKA first-team squad during the 2016-17 season before establishing himself the following season.

Transfermarkt value the striker at €10million.
