Time is ticking.
With just over one month to go until Kvaratskhelia supposedly will be at a new club, Orta will have to work his magic to win the race.
The Russian Premier Liga have labelled the winger as “world-class” after his incredible skill at points throughout the previous campaign.
That clip alone is enough to get us drooling at the prospect of this signing, with him drifting past numerous defenders with ease on his way to goal.2
Georgian journalist Kokiashvili has been close to this one since it started, so this is certainly one to watch as he reports everything along the way.
This could happen at any point in the next month, so keep your eyes peeled.
