Aleksandr Golovin is set to be announced as a Chelsea player after his CSKA Moscow teammate Sergey Chepchugov hinted on Instagram that the midfielder is on the verge of moving to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have been monitoring the 22-year-old for several weeks and are hoping to grab the star ahead of Monaco who are also reported to be interested in his signature.
