Transfer: Russia’s brightest midfielder, Arsen Zakharyan in quick move to Chelsea

 Chelsea have decided to trigger a €15 million (£12.6m) release clause to sign Dynamo Moscow midfielder, Arsen Zakharyan.

Zakharyan is widely regarded as one of the brightest midfielders in Russia after playing his first game for Dynamo Moscow in November 2020.

The 19-year-old has won the club’s Player of the Year award for two seasons in a row and has been capped four times by Russia’s national team.

He can function perfectly at the left and central midfield and scored nine goals and registered nine assists last season.

Sport-Express in Russia reports that Chelsea are now making a shock move for the player and want the deal done as fast as possible.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are willing to pay Zakharyan’s €15m (£12.6m) release clause as Pavel Andreev, the player’s agent confirmed to Russia’s RB Sport that Chelsea’s approach is genuine.

The nineteen-year-old-midfielder still has two years remaining on his current deal with the club.
