Arsenal join Barcelona in eyeing up 21-year-old Russian ace, both clubs reportedly interested in star according to agent

Arsenal are reportedly interested in this 21-year-old Barcelona target…

It’s being said that Arsene Wenger’s side are showing interest in 21-year-old CSKA Moscow and Russia star Aleksandr Golovin, who is also being eyed up by Spanish giants Barcelona.

This is being reported by Russian news outlet Sport Express, who say that agent Sandor Varga believes that the interest that both the sides have in the midfielder is justified.

Speaking the reported interest of both Arsenal and Barcelona in Golovin, Varga said “The guy really deserves the attention of such clubs.”

Since his debut for CSKA in 2014, Golovin has managed to amass a decent record for the Russian Premier League side.

In 92 appearances, the midfielder has clocked up a record of eight goals and seven assists, a respectable amount for someone as young as he is.

The player is yet to fully hit the ground running so far this season however, as the player has only managed to score twice and assist once in 22 appearances in all competitions.

The 21-year-old is capable of playing as both a defensive and attacking midfielder, with CSKA boss Victor Goncharenko even deploying the player as a winger on occasion.

Should Arsenal end up pursing Russian international Golovin, it’ll be interesting to see if they can fend off Barcelona in the race to secure the player’s signature.
