Arsen Zacharyan is likely to follow Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea – fans have been told

Zakharyan is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in world football and we were willing to pay his €15m (£12.6m) release clause, however, the deal collapsed due to FIFA and UEFA restrictions on signing Russian players.

However – the club are still keeping a close eye on the talented young man and he has recently come out and stated his desire to join the Blues –

Zacharyan recently opened up and admitted that talks are now underway.

“I don’t think about it now,” he said, as per @sportexpress, via @hrachoff.

“You can ask the club or my representatives. I think it’s all right. Talks are underway. But I won’t reveal all the cards.”

Now – if you believe the words of Journalist Dean Jones – Zacharyan will follow Nkunku to Stamford Bridge after the RB leipzig star reportedly agreed a move to London himself recently

Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “What we know is the Nkunku deal is being pushed through, there’s also the deal for Zakharyan that is being viewed as a priority.

“So those two are good and likely transfers that will happen, anything else I think is going to probably rely on some players moving out first.”

And if you believe the words of Iomie Stanley – he would be a very good signing for the Blues – he told IcFootballnews: ‘If it was not for that FIFA ban – Chelsea would have Zacharyan in the side already.

‘they are impressed by his ability and believe that they can turn him into that next big thing – especially now that Graham Potter is in charge of the club.

‘For the right money – he would be a very good signing for the club – but it will be a tough task to actually get a deal done with all the Issues in the world right now.

‘But he is a talent and would be a great buy.

‘However – Potter has some serious issues that he needs to sort out and we are not sure that signing a talent like Zacharyan for now would be the best way to solve his issues.

‘He would be a good signing for the Blues – but not to solve the clubs issues in attack.”
