Chelsea will splash out for CSKA Moscow winger Yuri Zhirkov at the end of the season.

Zhirkov has been recommended to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich by outgoing coach Guus Hiddink.

And The Sun says AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti, who is expected to succeed the Dutchman, agrees with Hiddink's assessment of Zhirkov.

Abramovich will have to cough up £15 million to land the CSKA star.
