Chelsea are being dubbed the favourites to sign Russian World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin.
"I know there have been contacts between the player and Juventus, but we need to see what CSKA thinks," Shirokov told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Golovin's contract is not expiring, and the CSKA president knows how to manage the market well, both in and out.
"With this World Cup the value of Golovin is growing, and a real auction could be on the cards for him.
"In this case I like the chances of the English teams, Chelsea, above all, are favourites."
