Aleksandr Golovin’s move to Chelsea is reportedly set to be wrapped up in the coming days after the CSKA midfielder dropped a massive hint on social media.
The Blues have been heavily linked with the Russia World Cup midfielder and Sky in Italyclaim a deal is close between Chelsea and the Russian outfit.
The Sun claim Chelsea have agreed a fee with CSKA for Golovin, believed to be around €30m, with the midfielder rejecting an offer from Monaco to head to Stamford Bridge.
And now Golovin’s CSKA Moscow team-mate Sergey Chepchugov has dropped the biggest hint yet that the midfielder is moving to the Blues after a post on his Instagram account.
Chepchugov’s post congratulated the midfielder on sealing a move to a “big club” and wished him well at Chelsea.
Golovin’s official Instagram account @alex_golovin17 liked the post.
New Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri tried to sign Golovin when he was in charge at Napoli and on Wednesday he said he wanted to add some quality to his central midfield.
“I cannot name any names because I don’t know who these people are. I spoke with the club and I said ideally a pinch of quality is lacking in our central midfield for a certain kind of play,” he said.
“At the end of the transfers it will be up to me to decide what the most suitable play for our squad is. I must adapt to Chelsea and the available players.”
