Chelsea have reportedly identified the next Eden Hazard and the Blues have been told when the attacker can join Chelsea.
18 year old Dynamo Moscow attacker Arsen Zakharyan has been tagged the next Eden Hazard and is already attracting interest from Barcelona, Liverpool and many more prominent European clubs, according to Football London.
The winger has performed spectacularly for Dynamo Moscow so far this season, scoring two goals and providing seven assists in all competitions for the Russian outfit, while having also earned four caps for his national side.
Zakharyan is already producing more shots – 3.1 to 0.8 – key passes – 2.4 to 1.4 – and also dribbles – 1 to 0.9 – per game than Hazard has managed for Spanish giants Real Madrid this season according to WhoScored.
Sergey Stepashin, one of Dynamo Moscow’s board of directors, has suggested the winger won’t leave the Russian outfit anytime soon until he turns 21.
Talking to KP Sport via Football London, he said: “No, these are agent games [the transfer rumours]. He is still a young man. He still has to grow and grow.
“I believe that Arsen can play in Russia for another two to three years. Time must pass for a footballer to succeed. And when he turns 21, it’s just right… Look, almost no one plays well abroad from our country now. Maybe only Golovin.”
Zakharyan still has two-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal in Moscow having progressed through the club’s youth academy.
