Chelsea ‘desperate’ to sign £66m Serie A striker that isn’t Victor Osimhen
Whilst Manchester City were able to win the Premier League without using a no.9 on a regular basis, Chelsea are having no such look under Graham Potter.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been banished from the Champions League squad and his league minutes have been limited this year.
This leaves Kai Havertz as the Blues’ main focal point in attack and it is not working out well so far.
The west Londoners have scored a dismal 23 goals in the league so far this season, which is the lowest record in the top 11 by some distance.
So, a new striker arriving in the summer seems inevitable. And now, according to Football Insider, Chelsea are ‘desperate’ for a new forward and believe Dusan Vlahovic could become available at the end of the 2022/23 campaign amid financial uncertainty at Juventus.
Vlahovic joined Juventus in January 2022 for £66.6m and has scored 19 goals in 44 matches for the Italian giants.
Victor Osimhen is also wanted at Chelsea, but they are aware that it will take a huge fee to prise him away from Napoli.
