Chelsea are ready to enter the race to sign Dusan Vlahović.
That is according to reports in Italy, which saw the West London club are among the favourites to sign the Fiorentina striker, who has become one of the most sought after players in Europe, after matching Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 33 goals in a calendar year in Serie A in 2021.
He has also scored 16 goals in 19 appearances this season.
However, despite being heavily linked with him, neither of the North London pair of Arsenal and Tottenham are being touted as a potential destination for the young Serb.
Instead, the Champions League winners is currently competing with Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus for his signature, although Fiorentina re loathe to sell him to their Serie A rivals.
Vlahović, who has 18 months left on his deal is valued at £65 million by Fiorentina, but they are unlikely to get that for him in the current market.
