Liverpool have joined Premier League rivals Manchester United and others in the race to sign CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
It was revealed that the Reds are the latest Premier League club to be linked with the 21-year-old Russian international star.
According to the Daily Mirror, the likes of Premier League champions Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also keen to sign Fedor Chalov.
The CSKA Moscow star scored 15 goals in the Russian Premier League last season to emerge as the highest goalscorer.
Apart from the aforementioned Premier League clubs, European clubs like German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, Spanish club Sevilla and German side Borussia Dortmund have all been linked with a move for Fedor Chalov who’s rated at £20m.
Liverpool could replace Daniel Sturridge with Fedor Chalov ahead of the new season after the England international exited the club at the end of his contract this summer.
Sturridge was part of the Liverpool squad that won the Champions League title last month at the expense of Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The 29-year-old was an unused substitute as Liverpool beat Spurs 2-0 to win the competition.
