Report: Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin linked to Gunners


Via Football London (in turn via reports in the Russian press) comes news that Arsenal are after midfielder Aleksandr Golovin.

The 21 currently plays for CSKA Moscow, primarily in central midfield but can apparently play from the left as well.

The report suggests Arsenal could make a £10m signing then loan him back to CSKA for another season, perhaps to allow him to develop further.

However, the Russian press have been pretty unreliable when it comes to Arsenal transfers over the last few years. We’ve been linked with a number of players but none of the deals have come to pass.

Considering Arsene Wenger said he’s after ‘top, top quality’ this summer, we’re going with a sloppy 8 on the Poo-o-Meter for this one.

Here’s a UEFA profile of him from a couple of years ago.
