Dusan Vlahovic news

Vlahovic to Chelsea this summer?

Chelsea are likely to focus on the signing of Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic when the transfer window reopens this summer.

The Blues are expected to purchase a new centre-forward at the end of the season with Nicolas Jackson yet to be consistent enough.

Vlahovic was on their radar at the start of the campaign, but they did not make a move amid his average form and injuries.

However, he has been much better in the current season. He has 12 goals to his name and six of those have come in the last five outings.

The Serbian has started to look like the player from his Fiorentina days and it is claimed that Chelsea have him as a big summer target.

Juventus purchased the striker from La Viola for €90m two years ago and they are prepared to sell him for a package of around €80m.

The Blues should be able to afford the package, but they will first have to balance their financial books with player sales.
