Report: Todd Boehly personally wants to bring £66m striker to Chelsea alongside Christopher Nkunku
Reports have claimed that Todd Boehly is keen on signing Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic next year as well as Christopher Nkunku.
According to iLbiancoNero, the Blues owner is keen to bring in a replacement for Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, with the pair both joining former sides during the summer.
While the Belgian is only away on loan at the moment with Inter Milan, it is expected he will push again for a return to the Nerazzurri due to his torrid spell back in the Premier League.
Werner was far more loved than Lukaku, with him being a key part of the club’s Champions League victory last year.
However, a reported difference of opinion between the German and his countryman Thomas Tuchel saw the former manager sanction his departure from the club.
Boehly wants Vlahovic
Now, iLbiancoNero have claimed that Boehly is looking to Serie A for his replacement for the two expensive stars, with him considering making a move for Juventus’ Vlahovic.
The striker has been of interest to Premier League clubs before, with the report going on to say that Arsenal still hold a desire to sign him, despite currently having Gabriel Jesus leading the line.
Juventus signed the 22-year-old for around £66m, although their drop in form as a club has led to him not having the career lift off he will have hoped for.
The Blues are already in advanced negotiations to sign Nkunku from RB Leipzig, with them holding a medical for the Frenchman over the summer after it became clear they wouldn’t be able to sign him during this window.
If it comes down to only being able to pick one player out of the two, the Blues should certainly focus on Nkunku, with his versatility making him a quality option anywhere across the front line.
