Former Spartak player Evgeny Lovchev expressed the opinion that Dynamo player Arsen Zakharyan and Krasnodar football player Eduard Spersyan will not be able to play in the biggest championships of Europe. Transmits words sports24.
I don’t believe Zakharyan and Spertsyan can play in Europe. They haven’t shown anything yet. I cannot equate them with Miranchuk and Golovin,” Lovchev said.
If you remember, Chelsea offered £12.6m for the 19-year-old midfielder in the summer. However, the transfer did not take place due to the restrictions imposed on Russian football last year. Many Russian clubs have had trouble getting funding from previous European transfers.
It was also reported that Chelsea would not give up on Zakharyan, but contact between the clubs for player transfers was suspended in the fall.
It was learned in January that Chelsea’s continued interest in Russia, but is no longer a priority option for the Brits.
Spertsyan’s contract with Krasnodar is valid until 30 June 2026. It’s worth €9 million, according to Transfermarkt. reportedItalian football club Fiorentina is considering the option of signing Spertsyan.
