Chelsea and Arsenal target Aleksandr Golovin has been offered to Juventus, according to the latest reports.

The CSKA Moscow midfielder is expected to be one of host nation Russia’s key performers at the World Cup, and has been tipped for a summer transfer.

Premier League clubs have been dealt a blow though, as Calciomercato report that the Russian Premier League runners up have given Juventus the chance to sign the 22-year-old.

CSKA and Juventus are said to have met in recent days to discuss a transfer for the highly-rated Golovin.

The Russian club want a fee in the region of €25m for Golovin, who has 19 senior caps for Russia.

Golovin would add to Juventus’ depth in midfield, with the club also keen to sign Mousa Dembele from Tottenham, and expected to confirm the signing of Emre Can on a free transfer from Liverpool.

Manchester United had also been suggested as a potential destination for Golovin, who last year admitted he was “pleased” by interest from Arsenal.
