CSKA Moscow will take wonderkid Aleksandr Golovin back on loan for the season if he signs for Arsenal.
Russian journalist Ilya Kasakov is reporting that Arsenal are close to a £10 million deal for the 21-year old.
Arsenal scout Pavel Kucherov was quoted as saying: “This player is not talented enough for European level and it’s unrealistic to discuss his transfer to a top English club.
“Alexander would need to improve his football in general, as well as his physical, psychological and mental attributes.”
A loan back to CSKA would allow Golovin to improve in the areas highlighted by Kucherov, while allowing Arsenal to develop a promising young talent.
