Arsenal are claimed to be readying a bid to sign CSKA Moscow’s attacking star Aleksandr Golovin, but Arsene Wenger is believed to have other ideas.
The Frenchman is claimed to be eager to team up with the Russian international should he acquire a new job this summer, while his replacement in North London is said to have sanctioned a move for his signature.
Golovin has been attracting plenty of attention for an extremely exciting season, and is believed to have returned glowing scouting reports from the Gunners team who had been watching him, prompting Emery to give the go-ahead to his team to move forward with negotiations.
The player’s representative Sandor Varga insists that Wenger remains interested in the player, as well as Chelsea. Varga said: ‘I can say the same about Wenger.
‘I asked Arsene about Golovin, the Frenchman said: ‘I do not know what Arsenal will do, but I’ll take him for myself’.
‘Arsene wants to work. While there is no certainty, we negotiated with two clubs, but did not come to an agreement.
‘But if Wenger takes [charge of] any team, Golovin will have another option.’
Would Wenger really go out of his way to beat Arsenal in the transfer market to a target? Which club looks a realistic option for the Frenchman to team up with the creative Russian? Should our club stop wasting time and step-up their chase for Golovin?
