Chelsea is set to beat Juventus to the signature of CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, according to report in Goal.
Chelsea is close to secure the services of Russian midfielder after making progress in the meeting with his agent.
Juventus made an offer of €20 million (£18m/$23m) to CSKA Moscow but Chelsea is willing to meet the player’s buyout clause of €30m (£27m/$35m).

Golovin has been sensational in the World Cup in Russia especially in the group stages and he hopes to guide his country past Spain in the round of 16.
Though the Stamford Bridge outfit is yet to clarify their managerial issue for the next season, they appeared to feel comfortable that they would land Maurizio Sarri.
With Chelsea bid for the Russian midfielder, the chances for Juventus signing the CSKA Moscow player now looks very slim and the Serie A Champions have to look elsewhere for reinforcement.
