Chelsea could rekindle move for Jhon Duran soon

Chelsea could look to sign Jhon Duran from Aston Villa this summer after the move had gone cold in the last few weeks.

Jhon Duran was linked with a move to Chelsea earlier this summer, but the move did not materialise. The Blues agreed personal terms with the player, but they could not secure an agreement with fellow Premier League club Aston Villa. According to Football Insider, they could now revive the move for the 20-year-old striker.

The South American attacker needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, and a move to Chelsea would be ideal for him. Aston Villa will not be able to provide him with ample game-time opportunities ahead of Ollie Watkins. He will be a squad player for them next season as well. Duran scored eight goals in all competitions for Aston Villa last season, and he was a backup option for them.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea are willing to provide him with game-time assurances this summer. They need to bring in a quality goalscorer as Nicolas Jackson has not been able to live up to the expectations.

Signing another striker could prove to be a wise decision, with Duran emerging as a target. Chelsea will be looking to push for major trophies next season and they need to plug their weaknesses. They were overly dependent on Cole Palmer last season and the English attacker needs more support in the attack.

Jhon Duran would be a quality addition

Duran has the quality to develop into a reliable striker, and he could be a key player for Chelsea in the coming seasons. The Colombian international is likely to improve with coaching and experience. He is still only 20 with a big future ahead of himself. Chelsea would do well to secure his signature this summer.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can get rid of their weaknesses before the new season begins. Signing a quality goalscorer should be a top priority for them. They have been linked with a number of strikers in recent weeks, and it will be interesting to see who they end up signing eventually. They are one of the biggest clubs in the country, and the opportunity to join them will be quite attractive for most players.
