Chelsea may move for Aston Villa striker

Chelsea are considering making a surprise move for Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran before transfer deadline day.

The 20 year old Colombian joined the West Midlands’ club from MLS side Chicago Fire, but has struggled for game time under Unai Emery, due to the fine form of Ollie Watkins ahead of him.

In his 35 appearances for the club so far, mainly off the bench, he has scored four goals and provided one assist.

Despite this, Chelsea believe he has the potential to score more goals if given a regular run in the team.

The two clubs meet in the FA Cup this weekend at Stamford Bridge, but Duran will not feature as he is currently out with a minor injury.

Any deal for Duran, though, may depend on Armando Broja being sold. The Albanian international is the subject of interest from a number of clubs, including Villa, West Ham, Fulham and Wolves.
