They had not been the only club linked to the 22-year-old Russian international, who scored for his national team at the World Cup and impressed in front of a global audience. Arsenal and Juventus have both been rumoured to be interested in the playmaker.
An Instagram post from Chepchugov congratulated Golovin for a move to a, ‘big club,’ and went on to wish him good luck for his time at Chelsea.
Chelsea are undergoing a summer overhaul following the exit of Sarri. Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard have been strongly linked with moves to Real Madrid. Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Olivier Giroud are amongst a group of players who could depart Stamford Bridge.
