Arsenal, Hull work together to bring Aleksandr Golovin to England

Arsenal are working with Hull City to bring CSKA Moscow attacker Aleksandr Golovin to England.

Sports.ru says the Gunners are on the brink of a €11.5 million deal with CSKA for the 21 year-old.

With Leonid Slutsky confirmed as new Hull City manager, the former Russia coach is expected to welcome Golovin on-loan to the Championship for next season.

High profile agent Sandor Varga is backing the deal.

Varga insisted: "Arsène Wenger likes to take young players to develop. Golovin has a lot of potential and would be able to get a foothold in at Arsenal."

However, former Russia international striker Sergei Yuran warns, "It's too soon for him to go to England. He's not ready."
