The young Russian star Aleksandr Golovin has reportedly been watched by Arsenal for the last couple of years and he just seems to get better and better and has definitely been one of the stand out players at the World Cup so far. So it is hardly surprising that his club CSKA Sofia are looking for a good return if he goes on the transfer market.
The Mirror reported today…..
CSKA Moscow have increased their asking price for Aleksandr Golovin due to Premier League interest.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all keen on Golovin, who has caught the eye with Russia at the World Cup.
Juventus launched the first offer for Golovin of around €15m but it was rejected outright by CSKA, who want between €25m-€30m.
Let’s be honest, if he played for one of the top European clubs he would be worth at least €30m, and then some! I personally would consider it a great investment in a top player that is just 22 years old. Should Arsenal just pay the money and get him over here as quick as possible?
