San Lorenzo striker Adolfo Gaich admits he is heading to CSKA Moscow, despite interest from Milan, Roma, Parma and Benfica.
The 21-year-old centre-forward is expected to complete the transfer for €8.5m plus bonuses.
“I am going to a great team, it is a good first step for my career to arrive in Russia and later move on to a more important European league,” Gaich told Radio La Red.
He already has one senior cap for Argentina and scored five goals in 12 Superliga games for San Lorenzo this season.
