Levchenko doubts Chelsea will send Golovin to Vitesse: He's too big for them

Former Vitesse Arnhem midfielder Yevhen Levchenko can't see his old club signing Aleksandr Golovin.

Chelsea are expected to sign the CSKA Moscow attacker - with Dutch media claims of the Russia international moving to Vitesse on-loan next season.

But Levchenko told NOS: "(Leonid) Slutsky took him as coach of CSKA Moscow under his wing and later gave him his debut with the national team. For Golovin he is like a second father. That could be a reason why people connect him to Vitesse, where Slutsky is now coach.

"But I think Vitesse is already too small for him."

He continued: "Golovin has been playing in the Champions League for three years and already has a Euros and a World Cup behind his name. It would be a nice stunt for Vitesse, but I do not think he wants it. This is perhaps the most important decision in his life."
