Chelsea ‘still hold’ interest in historical striker target but it isn’t straightforward

Chelsea ‘still hold’ an interest in one historical striker target that they have been linked with for many years now, according to an exclusive report today.

It’s clear that The Blues are looking at many different striker options for the summer transfer window that opens at the end of this season, and they are continuing to be linked with many different names.

With Nicolas Jackson as the only real number 9 they have at the club right now, they clearly want to sign another striker option to play in that position.

In terms of true centre forwards, Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus is certainly one name who can be classed as that, and he has been linked with Chelsea many times before.

Our own Simon Phillips has a report on potential new strikers out on his personal Substack site today, and he confirms that some at Chelsea are still keen on signing Vlahovic, but not all of them.

Vlahovic looks like he may well be signing a new contract extension at his club soon though, so Chelsea will have to be quick if they really want to try and sign him.
