Chelsea ready to turn to CSKA Moscow striker Fyodor Chalov

Chelsea are ready to turn to CSKA Moscow striker Fyodor Chalov as an alternative to PSG ace Edinson Cavani this month.

The Daily Express says Stamford Bridge chiefs are still interested in CSKA frontman Chalov, who is available for around £20m.

The 21-year-old has scored five goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances in the Russian top-flight this season.

There are two-and-a-half years left on the Russian's contract and he will return to action tomorrow night after a six-week winter break.

Chelsea have a good relationship with CSKA but Chalov has also reportedly garnered interest from Brighton, while Crystal Palace tried to sign him in the summer.
