Juventus are willing to offer Vlahovic as part of a deal to try and bring Romelu Lukaku to the Allianz.
Journalist Paul Brown has told GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea have been linked with a move for Dusan Vlahovic. Chelsea’s new manager Mauricio Pochettino wants Juventus striker in attack.
The Blues have already been in the market for new attackers during the summer transfer window. Vlahovic signed for Juventus from Italian club Fiorentina for a fee of £66m.
Vlahovic was supposed to join Premier League in the winter window but Juventus hijacked the deal. Now, the Serie A giants are open to offloading Vlahovic this summer.
Juventus are willing to offer Vlahovic as part of a deal to try and bring Romelu Lukaku to the Allianz. Chelsea is likely to offload Lukaku and if Juventus signs him then Vlahovic may find a place in the Emirates.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist Dean Jones said: “I think he could be a really interesting signing for Chelsea but it would cost a lot of money and this would be the one who will be playing for them every week.
“This would be the big-name centre forward that Pochettino I think is after. I don’t really think he’s like a Diego Costa either. He doesn’t really have that kind of aggression.
“Diego Costa was just a mean, nasty ball of aggression, which really worked for Chelsea at the time. Vlahovic is kind of more silky than that, I would almost say. A very good finisher and someone who has a range of shooting too.
“So, it will be interesting to see if they do this deal and I think he could be a success at Chelsea.”
