Chelsea are reportedly closing in on a £27million deal for Aleksandr Golovin, who has starred for Russia at the World Cup.
Golovin’s mother has confirmed her son is in talks with Chelsea over a potential transfer to Stamford Bridge
The CSKA Moscow star is attracting interest from Chelsea and other Premier League clubs, but Chelsea seem to be leading the chase for the 22-year-old.
“Yes, now there are talks between the clubs, but we still do not know the details,” Golovin’s mother, Svetlana, said.
“Sacha right now stands only for the Russian team, fully focused on the World Cup. The transition from one club to another will only be discussed after it is completed here.
“For now, everyone loves my Sacha, even those who before didn’t care about football. His biggest fan is his 83-year-old grandmother – she does not miss a single match.”
