Arsene Wenger has revealed how impressed he is with Aleksandr Golovin, amid plenty of rumours of Arsenal interest in the player.
The media have linked Golovin with a move to Arsenal a lot in the last year or so. The player himself even spoke about their interest just a few days ago. Now Wenger has admitted he likes what he’s seeing from the player.
“His performances are very good,” Wenger said. “He’s a regular player in the Russian national team, so he’s a strong player.
“CSKA have two players in the midfield who play in the national team, Dzagoev and Golovin, so they have the best midfield in the country.”
Not only that, but Golovin’s agent also confirmed Arsenal’s interest in the player last November.
Golovin came through the youth ranks of CSKA Moscow and joined the senior squad in the summer of 2015.
The 21-year-old has made 105 appearances for the Moscow club in his two-and-a-half senior seasons, establishing himself as a first choice midfielder.
During the 2016/17 season, Golovin made 37 appearances for CSKA, scoring three goals and making four assists.
He has 36 appearances this season already with six goals and four assists.
