Chelsea lining up swoop for €80m Serie A striker
Chelsea have entered talks with Juventus to sign Dusan Vlahovic in the upcoming transfer window, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Blues are aiming to land a marquee striker ahead of next season and they have been linked with a number of high-profile names.
Vlahovic is one of those and Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Blues held a meeting with Juventus officials in London last week.
During the discussions, Juventus made it clear that they want £69m for the striker, but the Blues remain hopeful of lowering the fee.
Chelsea are currently in the process of offloading several players from their squad. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is reportedly a target for Juventus.
The club could propose to include their graduate as part of the move for Vlahovic, though the Bianconeri could decline such an offer.
Bayern Munich are also interested in landing the Serbian star, and the Blues may have to be quick to avoid a bidding battle for him.
