Aleksandr Golovin looks to be on his way to Chelsea, if a social media post from CSKA Moscow team-mate Sergey Chepchugov is anything to go by.

It appears Golovin's switch to Stamford Bridge is on the cards, with Chepchugov having wished his team-mate good luck at his next club in an Instagram post.

The goalkeeper congratulated Golovin on joining Chelsea and wished him a "great career".
