Arsen Zakharyan’s time at Dinamo Moscow could soon end as a whole host of clubs are lining up to sign him.
As per Turkish media, Galatasaray are willing to buy Dinamo Moscow winger Arsen Zakharyan.
The Russia international joined Dinamo Moscow from Konoplyov Academy in 2017. His current deal runs out in the summer of 2024.
The winger has banged in 3 goals and provided 6 assists in 22 matches this term on all fronts.
He is considered to be one of the best wingers in Russia. As a member of Russia national football team, Zakharyan won 6 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Galatasaray.
Okan Buruk wants to sign a new winger and Arsen Zakharyan is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The report claims that Galatasaray manager has extensively scouted Zakharyan and is considering a move for the winger.
Someone with Arsen Zakharyan’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Okan Buruk‘s attack. The 19-year-old will add a new dimension to Galatasaray’s attack. His arrival would give Galatasaray some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Galatarasay have expressed interest in Dinamo Moscow winger Arsen Zakharyan. Zakharyan was expecting to join Chelsea in January, but the move never materialised. There is now talk of Gala planning to make an offer for the Russia international ahead of taking him to Turkey in the summer.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Russian giants are reluctant to let Zakharyan go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Galatasaray have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Russia international.
The Turkish giants are reportedly facing competition from Chelsea in their pursuit of Dinamo Moscow winger.
Good signing for Galatasaray?
If Arsen Zakharyan is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Galatasaray.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
As for the player, Galatasaray could be a great place for him to grow as a footballer. They will be able to provide him with regular first-team football and he will be coached by a very good manager like Okan Buruk.
How strong that interest is and whether Galatasaray will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
