Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly joined by Juventus in the chase after Russia midfielder Aleksandr Golovin.
We reported on Sunday that the Russian youngster is getting huge offers from top clubs after his awe-inspiring performance against Saudi Arabia in their first match of the FIFA World Cup tournament.
The 22-year-old versatile playmaker, who can be deployed as a winger, was a thorn in the flesh of the Arabians’ defence throughout the game which ended 5-0 in favour of the host country.
It was earlier claimed by The Daily Mirror last month that Juventus made an official approach towards signing him up from CSKA Moscow last season but they saw their £8m bid rejected by the Muscovite.
However, According to the Express, the Old Lady are willing to upgrade their bid from £8m to £13m this summer, but they might need to compete with Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Sun claimed that Mourinho, who is presently working as a World Cup pundits, is keeping tab on the youngster’s performance.
Golovin could be an upgrade to Anthony Martial, who is linked with a move to Emirates Stadium next season.
Having played 43 matches for CSKA Moscow during last campaign, the £22m-rated star was involved in 13 goals – seven goals and six assists- to become one of Europe’s best prospects.
