Arsen Zakharyan, a Russian midfielder, is reportedly the Blues’ top priority right now, and the 19-year-old is most likely on the verge of moving to Stamford Bridge.
He told GMS that in addition to the deal for Zakharyan being prioritized, we are aware that the Nkunku deal is being pushed through. Therefore, he believes that those two transfers are worthwhile and likely to occur and that anything else will likely depend on players leaving first.
Chelsea, who are currently in dire need of midfield reinforcements, could benefit greatly from the young midfielder’s long-term signing.
Key players like Jorginho and N’Golo Kanté are expected to leave the Blues at the end of the season when their contracts expire, and this season, players like Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech have struggled to deliver at a high level.
Graham Potter must make use of the January transfer window to add the necessary middle-of-the-park reinforcements, and it will be intriguing to see if they can finalize a deal for Zakharyan in the coming weeks.
The 19-year-old is well-regarded in Europe and has a bright future.
Since taking over, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has made it a priority to sign both established players and up-and-coming players, and the 19-year-old could turn out to be a wise long-term investment.
While managing Brighton and Hove Albion, Chelsea manager Graham Potter did a commendable job of developing young, gifted players. He might be crucial to Zakharyan’s growth as well.
The young player will be looking to Chelsea’s regular football to help him reach his enormous potential.
A deal to bring the 25-year-old attacker to Stamford Bridge before the upcoming season is also getting closer, according to Romano, who posted on social media on Monday afternoon.
According to the Italian journalist, a medical has already been conducted, and it will soon be time to sign the contracts and confirm the agreement.
