Chelsea should ensure they make a summer move for this Russian World Cup hero

The future of the manager at Chelsea remains up in the air as Antonio Conte is still unclear of what will be happening at the end of the World Cup.

The Blues, who missed out on Champions League football last season, will no doubt be keen to get things resolved, and our Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are hoping that things can sorted quickly.

The club need to get dipping into the transfer market, and with the likes of Liverpool and Man United already making big money signings, the Blues risk falling even further behind unless they move quickly.

Our landlord shares a similar view, and he is expecting big things from the Blues in terms of new names coming through the door this summer, and one player he thinks could be a perfect signing is Russia midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, who has been instrumental for Russia on their march to the World Cup quarter finals.

The busy midfielder, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, would appear to be the perfect sort of signing for the Londoners, who really do need to add a quality central midfielder to go alongside Ngolo Kante.

Golovin is capable of getting up with the attack and bagging goals but he has enough about him to put in a shift getting back too, as he has demonstrated on numerous occasions this summer.

If Chelsea are serious about challenging next season and improving on last year, then someone like Golovin should be taking their interest, and he would be an excellent to the Premier League.

Blues fans, what do you think to Golovin? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
