Chelsea have been told that it could take ‘two to three years’ for them to secure the services of reported target Arsen Zakharyan.

The Blues have been linked with the 18-year-old over recent days, with reports suggesting that they are set to rival the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and many more prominent European clubs for his signature.

It is certainly no surprise that the Blues have noticed the youngster, with the winger himself having performed spectacularly for Dynamo Moscow so far this season.

He already has two goals and seven assists in all competitions for the Russian outfit, whilst having also earned four caps for his national side.

As a matter of fact, his displays are far out-stripping that of former Chelsea hero Eden Hazard.

Zakharyan is already producing more shots – 3.1 to 0.8 – key passes – 2.4 to 1.4 – and also dribbles – 1 to 0.9 – per game than the Belgian has managed for Spanish giants Real Madrid this season according to WhoScored.

Whilst it would be easy to suggest that the youngster is harnessing those numbers in a weaker league, with Hazard’s powers also on the wane, they are certainly eye-catching for a player so young.

Despite that, it appears unlikely that Chelsea will be able to secure the signature of Zakharyan any time soon according to Sergey Stepashin – one of Dynamo Moscow’s board of directors.

Talking to KP Sport, he said: “No, these are agent games [the transfer rumours]. He is still a young man. He still has to grow and grow.

“I believe that Arsen can play in Russia for another two to three years. Time must pass for a footballer to succeed. And when he turns 21, it’s just right… Look, almost no one plays well abroad from our country now. Maybe only Golovin.”

Zakharyan still has two-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal in Moscow having progressed through the club’s youth academy.
