The attacking department of the Galatasaray squad needs quality additions this summer. Reports in the Turkish media claim Galatasaray are preparing move for Dinamo Moscow winger Arsen Zakharyan. He has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The 19-year-old has been with Dinamo Moscow since 2017, having signed for the club from Konoplyov Academy. His current deal expires in 2024.
This season, Zakharyan has scored three goals and provided six assists in 22 appearances for Dinamo Moscow.
The 19-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Russia. Zakharyan has earned six senior caps for the Russia national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
Arsen Zakharyan will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Dinamo Moscow this term.
Okan Buruk sees Arsen Zakharyan as the perfect addition to his attack. Buruk is a firm fan of Dinamo Moscow winger and Galatasaray could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
Someone with Zakharyan’s skillset and potential will no doubt be an excellent signing for Galatasaray boss.
The 19-year-old will add more quality to Galatasaray’s attack.
World Football Rumours
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.”
Dinamo feel under no pressure to sell and will “demand a significant fee” before letting him go.
The Super Lig giants might have to pay over the odds to sign the winger.
Good signing for Galatasaray?
Arsen Zakharyan stands as an excellent option for Galatasaray. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Nef Stadyumu. Therefore, it makes sense for Buruk to step up his attempts to bring the Russian winger to Super Lig side.
It will be interesting to see if Galatasaray can beat their rivals to the winger’s signature.
