CSKA Moscow central midfielder Aleksandr Golovin is ready to shun interest from Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea and join Cristiano Ronaldo at Serie A champions Juventus, reports in Italy claim.

The Russia international appears destined to leave CSKA Moscow after impressing Russia at the World Cup, helping to guide the host nation to the last eight.

Golovin scored one, contributed two assists and netted a penalty in the shoot-out win over Spain in the round of 16, but with Russia out of tournament attention has turned to his future.

North London outfit have been linked with a £26m move for Golovin, however Tuttosport understand Golovin wants to move to Turin this summer.

Those ambitions could be hindered by the arrival of Ronaldo at the Juventus Stadium for £99.2m, a deal which will see the Portugal international earn £500,000-a-week.

Whether Juve still have the finance to secure a deal for Golovin remains to be seen, but the CSKA man’s intentions are clear.

While Chelsea are yet to make any new signings this summer as they look set to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager to replace Antonio Conte, Arsenal have been busy in the off-season.

Five new signings have arrived since Unai Emery was installed as the successor to Arsene Wenger, and the Spaniard has spoken of wanting at least one new addition before the transfer window shuts on 9 August.
