Former midfielder of the Russian national team Marat Izmailov believes that someone from the troika – Alexei Miranchuk, Alexander Golovin and Fedor Smolov – can go to the European club after the 2018 World Cup.
"I think one of these guys after the World Cup will definitely leave the Premier League. I am also sure that 26-28 years is not too late. If we are now talking specifically about Smolov, then in his case definitely not too late.
He is a high-level football player, he is able to show himself from the first season, he does not need time to swing, to adapt, as often happens in young", – Izmailova Life quotes.
