Chelsea head coach Graham Potter is a huge admirer of Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports.
Vlahovic, who cost Juventus £67million, is a powerhouse striker at the age of 23.
The Serbian centre-forward has scored 10 goals in 26 club appearances so far this season.
He’s actually been linked recently with a potential move to Stamford Bridge, too.
Journalist Ben Jacobs claimed back in January that Chelsea held an interest in the Juventus frontman, who could be on the move in the summer.
Ben Jacobs has now explained this week that Chelsea’s interest in Vlahovic is one to watch, especially because Potter really likes him as a player.
Jacobs told GiveMeSport: “So, Vlahovic, for me, is still one to watch from Chelsea’s point of view, and that’s because I think there’s a real opportunity to prise him away from Juventus, especially given their circumstances at the moment.
“He’s not been particularly happy playing under Max Allegri, and Graham Potter really likes Vlahovic as well.”
If Chelsea go big to bring in a top striker this summer, Potter should definitely be in the conversation about who joins for such a crucial area on the pitch.
It’s been a conversation for years about Chelsea’s need to sign a clinical forward.
The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can join quite a long list of attackers to underachieve at Stamford Bridge.
On paper, Vlahovic looks a really interesting option with the potential to suit Premier League football.
He’s a powerful and aerial presence at the top end of the pitch, who can score goals in-between the sticks.
Chelsea fans can’t cope with yet another next season year without a regular goalscoring striker, something which most top teams all have nowadays.
