Chelsea has shown a keen interest in acquiring Juventus striker Dusan Vlahović, as per a report from Calciomercato.it.
They’re contemplating an offer in the ballpark of €80 million (£70m) for the 23-year-old forward.
Vlahović’s current season’s performance has caught many eyes.
In just six outings across all tournaments, he’s managed to net four goals and assist another.
Chelsea, on the lookout for a consistent striker, could greatly benefit from a player of Vlahović’s caliber.
This need for more firepower upfront became apparent when they signed Nicolas Jackson in the previous transfer window.
While Jackson is a noteworthy addition, the team requires enhanced depth in the forward position and Jackson could use reinforcement.
It’s worth noting that Chelsea had attempted to bring Vlahović onboard during the last transfer season, but their efforts were in vain.
The winter transfer window might provide another opportunity for the club to pitch a solid offer.
Interestingly, the same report from Calciomercato.it hints at Juventus possibly being willing to part ways with Vlahović, if the price is right.
An offer of €80 million could be tempting enough.
Since Vlahović’s transition from Fiorentina to Juventus, he hasn’t quite been at his peak.
A switch to Chelsea and the Premier League might be the change he needs.
A shift to Stamford Bridge would not only be thrilling for him but could also rejuvenate his form.
However, the ball is now in the court of both clubs to see if they can strike a deal.
