Hull City are believed to be helping Arsenal bring Aleksandr Golovin to England, with a loan move mooted should the Gunners secure his signature.

  • Former CSKA manager Leonid Slutskiy is the new Hull City manager
  • Slutskiy handed Golovin his debut and wants him on loan
  • Golovin looks set to join Arsenal this summer and then go out on loan

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Arsenal could send Golovin on loan to Hull next season to spend one more season with manager Leonid Slutskiy.

Slutskiy handed Golovin his debut for CSKA Moscow and managed him for a number of years before moving on to Hull. A familiar face may help Golovin settle in to English life.

Arsenal scout Pavel Kurcherov recently said that playing in the Championship would be a good move for the midfielder.

“In terms of pressure and physical battles, it’s no different to the Russian Premier League and would be a good experience for Golovin.”

“To play in front of packed crowds under his former coach for a couple of years and then move on to a mid-table EPL club would be the right move and anything can happen.”

However, there is also talk of Golovin returning to CSKA for another season so that he can continue playing at a higher level.
