CSKA Moscow wonder-kid Alan Dzagoev could be set for a move to the Premier League this summer, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all monitoring the youngster's progress according to the Russian press. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has made 28 league appearances for the Russian outfit, netting 11 times, since arriving from Krylia Sovetov-SOK in 2007. And the prodigy, dubbed the 'teenage Andrey Arshavin' has already earned international honours for the country that reached the semi-finals of the 2008 European Championships, winning three caps, the first against Germany last October. Dzagoev's domestic form for CSKA has inevitably led to speculation surrounding his future, with Chelsea - who are also targeting fellow Russian Yuri Zhirkov - thought to be keen on recruiting him during the close-season. However, the Blues are reportedly set to face competition for the forward's signature from both Spurs and Liverpool, who may be in need of midfield reinforcements with Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano being linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
