Chelsea 'resume £12.6m talks' despite window closing as Blues line up complex transfer

1 min read

The playmaker, who scored seven goals and registered six assists in the Russian Premier League last season, is seen as a prospect for the future rather than the present despite featuring regularly at first-team level for his club.

He will be eased into life as a Premier League player, where the intensity of the league can often prove to be daunting for players in lower-quality leagues. It is expected he will spend some time playing for the Under-23 development squad before being assessed for the first team.

Chelsea have already splashed out over £40m on bolstering their pool of youth talent, with Carney Chukwumueka, Cesare Casadei and Omari Hutchinson just some of the talented youngsters linking up to join Neil Bath’s youth revolution at Cobham.
