Liverpool have to beat Arsenal and United in race for 15-goals CSKA lethal striker

Premier League giants Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are all reportedly considering a move for CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov.

The 21-year-old won the Russian Premier League Golden Boot with 15 goals last season, also supplying seven assists despite CSKA missing out on Champions League qualification.

Chalov also scored against Real Madrid and Arsenal in Europe, and his performances are understood to have attracted the attention of a host of Europe’s biggest clubs.

The Mirror reports that the main interest has come from the Premier League, with five of the top six thought to be monitoring his progress.

Chelsea, who are currently under a transfer ban, are the only club from that group not considering a move, but Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are all reportedly interested.

The Premier League contingent could face competition from other clubs across Europe though, with Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Monaco and Sevilla all credited with an interest too.

Chalov signed a new contract at CSKA in January which keeps him tied to the club until 2022, but he could still be available for as little as £20m.
