CSKA Moscow were hoping to seal the deal for Abel Hernandez but the former Hull City player has failed a medical, as per reports. The entire process is in doubts now as the Russian side is not eager to move ahead.
The 27-year old was crucial for the Tigers late last season but decided he wanted more. It is unlikely that top Championship sides would take him not to mention Premier League sides that have so many options. He would need to lower his wage bill or remain in the UK.
CSKA are adding players that can help them in the new season. They recently lost Russia international AleksandrGolovin to AS Monaco. Following a good showing at the World Cup, Chelsea wanted the player but the move stalled and Monaco signed him. The 22-year old had several interests in Europe but eventually chose to move to the Ligue 1 after agreeing a five year deal.
