Chelsea would have to pay at least €80 million (£69 million) for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports in Italy.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that Chelsea are among the clubs who are interested in signing Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus in the summer transfer window.

Former Serie A champions Juventus want at least €80 million (£69 million) for the Serbia international, but Chelsea are reportedly not willing to pay that amount.

Tuttosport have also claimed that Juventus are looking for at least €80 million (£69 million) for the Serbian.

What should Chelsea do about Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic?

In our view, if €80 million (£69 million) is what it takes for Chelsea to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus in the summer transfer window, then the Blues should just pay it.

We know that Chelsea need a top-quality striker in the summer transfer window.

Vlahovic is only 23 now, which means that he has room to grow and time on his hands to develop as a striker.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is past his prime, and we do not know what is going to happen with Romelu Lukaku after his loan spell at Inter Milan ends.

We have see how good new Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino is with young players from his time at Tottenham Hotspur.

We believe that under Pochettino, Vlahovic – who is “lightning” and whose “left foot is like a wand”, according to former Manchester City and Fiorentina defender Micah Richards on BBC Radio 5 Live in December 2021. – could become even better.

True, the the £215,000-a-week (SalarySport) has not had the best of times at Juventus, but the Bianconeri have had issues and have not had a successful season as a team.
