Chelsea have reduced their forward targets to three shortlist which includes Randal Kolo Muani, Lautaro Martinez, and Dusan Vlahovic
Chelsea’s options for ST have apparently been reduced to:
• Randal Kolo Muani 🇫🇷
• Lautaro Martinez 🇦🇷
• Dusan Vlahovic 🇷🇸
1. Lautaro Martinez
Lautaro Martinez, The Argentine and Inter Milan player, is more of a poacher than a fluid playmaker, and he dives in the box and threatens the defense line. He is not a good goalscorer, either, but he paces, and the chances the Argentine can create will be great for Chelsea.
2. Dusan Vlahovic
According to a report by Corriere dello Sport, as relayed by Sport Witness, Chelsea are now ready to step up their efforts to sign 23-year-old Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer. The Serie A giants value him at €80 million.
Vlahovic joined Juventus in a big-money transfer but has not been able to live up to the expectations. He managed to score 14 goals in all competitions last season. But a player of his quality was expected to perform better.
Juventus have missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification and are expected to sell a key player to balance their books. It remains to be seen whether Chelsea can agree on a deal with the Turin giants for the Serbian international. The 23-year-old has the technical and physical attributes to succeed in the Premier League. And a fresh start at Stamford Bridge could be ideal for him.
Vlahovic was regarded as one of the best young talents in the world before his move to Juventus, and he has the attributes to develop into a top-class player. Regular football at Chelsea could help the Serb regain his form in confidence.
He has shown his quality at Florentina in the past, and there is no doubt that he could be a key player for Chelsea in the coming season. Chelsea have appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, and the 51-year-old tends to get the most out of his players. He is also an expert when it comes to nurturing talented young players and helping them fulfil their potential.
3. Randal Kolo Muani
The French international, who is reportedly valued at £105million, has been linked with the Ligue 1 side in the past. However, a deal between PSG and Kolo Muani’s employers never materialised.
As a result, PSG turned their attention to Napoli striker Osimhen. But, the French side are said to be walking away from the 24-year-old as his club are demanding too much – according to L’Equipe.
Therefore, PSG have decided to reignite their interest in Kolo Muani and rival Manchester United in their pursuit of the young, versatile striker during the summer transfer window.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi is said to have asked PSG staff members to reach out to the 24-year-old to gauge his interest in joining the Ligue 1 side.
