Chelsea plot move to land Arsen Zakharyan… for RC Strasbourg

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Arsen Zakharyan for a long time, and they will look to help RC Strasbourg get him.

According to a report from 90min, it seems that the Chelsea owners are now looking to sign 20-year-old versatile midfielder Arsen Zakharyan for their newly acquired club RC Strasbourg.

Zakharyan is highly rated in European football, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for RC Strasbourg. It remains to be seen whether Chelsea can secure an agreement. The Blues wanted to sign the player earlier this year, but the move did not materialise.

The 20-year-old was expected to move to Stamford Bridge after the Russian invasion of Ukraine when a number of Russian club-owned players were securing moves to other parts of Europe. The report claims that a number of clubs are interested in signing the 20-year-old midfielder, who has entered the final year of his contract.

He could be available for a reasonable price this summer, and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can convince him to join their partner club Strasbourg. The Chelsea owners control a majority stake in the French club and they are hoping to build a formidable squad.

Apparently, a fee of around £8.6 million would be enough to sign the 20-year-old midfielder this summer. Zakharyan is expected to develop into a top-class player, and he could be a quality long-term acquisition for the French outfit.

If Chelsea want to sign him in the future, it will also become less complicated for them to get the transfer across the line because of the connections between the two clubs. They would be able to snap him up on a bargain if he develops into a top player. It remains to be seen whether the 20-year-old is keen on a move to Strasbourg this summer.

The talented young Russian remains a prodigious talent with a bright future, and he might hope to join a bigger club this summer. The opportunity to join Chelsea would certainly be an attractive proposition for him, and it remains to be seen how he reacts to the interest from Strasbourg.
