Chelsea front runners for CSKA star Zhirkov

Chelsea are believed to be in the box seat to acquire the services of CSKA Moscow winger Yuri Zhirkov.

It is understood that German club Bayern Munich were extremely interested in the 25-year old but have almost conceded that Chelsea will win out.

"According to some reports Zhirkov is also seriously interesting Chelsea," said CSKA general manager Uli Hoeness.

"If so we have no chance. Besides, The Blues are now managed by Guus Hiddink."
