Last season was a poor one for Chelsea, but to make matters worse for the club, their activity so far this summer has been just as poor. They’re yet to make a major signing, whilst their managerial dramas have caused repercussions elsewhere at the club too.
‘Like a young Reus’ – Plenty of Chelsea fans want midfielder to join and play under Sarri after development
In truth, things genuinely couldn’t be much worse for the club, and that has naturally led to a lot of negativity at Stamford Bridge.
Fortunately, things appear to be turning around.
The Blues appear to be edging closer to a solution both in their managerial chase and in their pursuit of fresh talent. Recent reports, notably from the Daily Mail, have indicated that the club are keen on landing Aleksandr Golovin.
Golovin, who is rated at £16.2 million by Transfer Markt, has had a sensational World Cup so far, having emerged as one of the nation’s most impressive performers. Able to play both in central midfield and out wide, he’s got bags of natural talent.
Naturally, Chelsea fans are quick to react to any transfer-related news, and this story has been no different. Plenty of fans have taken to Twitter to talk about the rumour, and it’s fair to say that most want to see him join the club.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

, Golovin will be a great addition

Golovin is so Iniesta-esque in his style. Lots to improve but love the way he plays, deft touches, quick passes best suited for Sarri football.

Golovin look like a young Reus

Been keeping an eye on Golovin. Complete midfielder, can do a bit of everything but what i really like about him is he's always on the move playing 1-2s and breaking lines. Good passer, very quick for a midfielder and he's tenacious. Can't wait to see him for Chelsea

Golovin looks a right player, insane potential, hope Chelsea can finalise the deal asap

Golovin, Kanté and Loftus-Cheek would be an incredible midfield for us under Sarri

If, if we do sign Golovin – I quite like the sound of Golovin (22), RLC (22) & Kante (27) as our midfield in a Sarri's 4-3-3 formation.

Clearly, Chelsea fans have been very impressed by Golovin, and it’s easy to see why. If Russia continue to progress at the World Cup, he will undoubtedly have a crucial role to play.
