Chelsea has a clear goal for next summer and it is none other than dusan vlahovic. According to sources close to the club, the Blues have submitted an offer of 80 million euros for the Serbian striker from Juventus, in a bid to secure his signing.
Vlahovic, 23, arrived in Turin from Fiorentina in January 2022 for a fee of 81.6 million euros, and still has three years left on his contract with the Italian club. Despite his goalscoring talent, the striker has failed to establish himself at Juventus due to the defensive approach of coach Massimiliano Allegri and uncertainty over the team’s qualification for the next edition of the Champions League.

Juventus found themselves in a sticky situation recently, when they were handed a 15-point penalty, putting them third in Serie A and in contention for a Champions League spot. However, the case has been referred to the football federation’s appeals court, and in the meantime, the team has recovered the pending points from a new trial. This situation has generated discomfort in Vlahovic and has opened the door for other clubs to take an interest in his services.
Chelsea have seen in Vlahovic’s discontent an opportunity to sign the player, whom they had already followed during his time at Fiorentina. Furthermore, incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino has been informed that a top striker will be sought to sign this summer. Eager to join Chelsea, Vlahovic has also sparked interest from Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid.
The player is determined to take a step forward in his career and the London club’s project is particularly attractive to him. The transfer market is looking exciting for Chelsea and fans are looking forward to the outcome of the negotiations for Vlahovic. With an offer of 80 million euros on the table, the English club will seek to convince Juventus and thus ensure the arrival of a striker who promises to give their attack new impetus. Only time will tell if Vlahovic ends up wearing a Chelsea shirt next season.
