Chelsea’s move for Dinamo Moscow’s Arsen Zakharyan is in doubt with less than a day in the transfer window to go, The Sun reports.
A move for the Dynamo Moscow midfielder has hit a snag over how the transfer fee will be paid.
Zakharyan has just a £12.6m release clause. However, the deal will not go ahead because of sanctions on the Russian economy due to the war in Ukraine.
The Blues have already spent £263million under the new ownership of Todd Boehly and Co.
