Chelsea interested in Jhon Duran

2024/06/12 17:14

According to several media reports in England, Chelsea are closing in on an agreement with Aston Villa over the signing of Colombian striker Jhon Duran.

It is believed that Todd Boehly’s big spending Blues, who have recently replaced Mauricio Pochettino with Enzo Maresca in the dugout, are willing to part with another £50 million in order to sign the forward after spending well over £1 billion since Boehly purchased the club back in the summer of 2022.

Jhon Duran joined Villa in the January transfer window of 2023 for a fee believed to be in the region of £14.75 million from Major League Soccer outfit Chicago Fire.

Since moving to Villa Park and being coached by Unai Emery, he has scored eight goals in 49 appearances across all competitions and has now been capped nine times for the Colombian national side.

Chelsea have been relatively quiet by their standards in the transfer window this summer, whilst Villa have already been forced into re-signing Cameron Archer due to a buy back clause as a result of Sheffield United’s relegation.

They are also set to sign Ross Barkley from Luton Town, whilst Samuel Iling-Junior and Weston McKennie are also supposedly on their way in part exchange as Douglas Luiz moves to Turin for a fee of £16 million as well as those two players.

As a football fan, I'm not sure about this move from Chelsea. Duran is a decent player, but is he really worth another £50 million Plus, Chelsea have already spent over a billion since 2022, can they really afford to keep splashing the cash

Wow, another big money signing for Chelsea. Can't believe they're willing to spend even more after already spending over £1 billion. Duran has been decent for Villa, but is he really worth £50 million Not convinced.
