    Has anyone ever watched him? And I mean actually watched him, not a YouTube highlights clip.

    Never heard of him. He wasnt at the WC last year?

    His numbers look decent though, also for the youth national team, seemed to score regularly. Still only 21

    Yeah. He's a good talent, but I don't think that he's ready to play on such high level yet.

    Meh, it’s the Russian league.

    Let us not forget Doumbia and Musa.

    Sounds as random as the spoofex rumour about their Sigurdsson lad. I imagine we will hear a lot of these now it looks certain Lukaku is off.

    If his striking ability is anywhere as good as his fellow countryman Fedor Emilianenko, then we must sign him at all costs..

    He only just had his breakthrough season there. I'm always for Russian players getting out of the RPL comfort zone to better leagues for development so by all means buy him, but he'd only be a prospect and squad depth right now for top 6 English teams or other european sides of similar level.

    He's got a wide skillset with potential to be really good in a lot of areas, but isn't an obvious phenom that looks certain like he could step right up to a big club right now. The talent i mainly see in him is as a creative, facilitating forward working alongside a close partner or two, he had to lead the line on his own a lot for CSKA and often struggled to remain a goalthreat while doing so, so has plenty to develop there. Doesn't look to be a big striker of the ball from outside of the box so far. Also while his season was a fine one considering his age, it was quite inconsistent in actual play from week to week, i feel he would benefit from another season or more in rpl, or if he does move to somewhere with less instant expectations.

    This has most if not all of his goals last season.

    Sounds like they threw in our name to sex up the story.

    Cheers for that.

    Looks to be a decent finisher from the highlights, nice range of quite different goals and some decent link-up play.

    Promising for a 21-year old for sure.

    Definitely, and quite often. There is no doubt that - at this point in time, at least - he is by far the best young Russian forward. However, it doesn't at all mean he is better than what we already have in attack. I have a feeling that Rashford is light years ahead.
