Chelsea could reportedly move for £66m Juventus striker who Arsenal failed to sign

Chelsea could reportedly move for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window, who Tottenham are also said to be interested in as Arsenal missed out on signing the Serbian earlier this year.


According to Il Bianconero, the Blues have entered the race for the Serie A superstar ahead of the winter window, with Bayern Munich and PSG also listed as interested in parties in Vlahovic, who only signed for Juventus in January of this year in a reported £66m deal from ACF Fiorentina according to Sky Sports.


Chelsea are far from alone in their interest in Vlahovic, though, with CalcioMercatoWeb recently reporting that Tottenham could move to sign the striker in 2023 should Harry Kane move to Bayern, with Antonio Conte seemingly a fan of the Juventus superstar.

With Arsenal infamously chasing Vlahovic last January and ultimately missing out on the striker, it would be quite the sting if Chelsea were to eventually sign the 22-year-old just one year after the Gunners did all they could to bring the Serbian international to north London.

With five goals in seven Serie A appearances this season, Vlahovic is in top form despite Juventus’ struggles this campaign. And as per Il Bianconero, the club’s financial matters could force their hand in selling the striker in January should a top offer come in.


Indeed, whilst Chelsea signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on deadline day, Vlahovic’s age and profile could be much better suited to Graham Potter’s system. Especially if Juventus are warming to the idea of selling the 22-year-old striker in the January transfer window.

Chelsea’s bid to sign Vlahovic might seem far-fetched, yet under new owner Todd Boehly, anything seems to be possible with the west London side. And bringing the Serbian to the Premier League would not doubt be quite a statement as well as a source of frustration for Arsenal and Tottenham.


After all, both north London clubs seemingly had a shot at signing Vlahovic, and to miss out on the Serbian by the hands of Chelsea will be quite the stinger for either Premier League side, even with both clubs having their own top-quality strikers in Gabriel Jesus and Harry Kane.
