Huge Blow For Arsenal As Golovin Chose To Join Juventus Switch
Arsenal and Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Russian playmaker and striker Aleksandr Golovin this summer after his lively showings at the world cup hosted by his country.
The CSKA Moscow star was relatively an unknown figure before the world cup but his impressive performance for the host nation brings him to limelight and he is currently one of the most sought-after youngsters at the ongoing transfer market.
Juventus are believed to have made an official approach to his agent over the possibility of luring him to Turin, according to reports via Tutto Sports.
The Gunners are also in the race for his services as Unai Emery looks to bolster his attacking capacity despite having quality strikers who can score goals for fun.
However, there is an unpleasant report for the Gunners and Chelsea faithfuls as Italian media are reporting that the youngster has chosen to move to Juventus despite interest from their team.
The Old Lady recently captured Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, they are on the verge of adding another attack-minded player to their squad in the person of the 22-year-old playmaker.
Neither CSKA nor Juventus have made an official statement about the player’s future, this means that the Gunners still have a chance of convincing the youngster to join the North London club this summer.
Golovin would be hoping to learn from Ronaldo next season, therefore, a switch to Turin looks likely to happen in coming days.
