€60m striker rumors persist, but the numbers simply don’t add up
Dusan Vlahovic is once again being linked to Chelsea.
Our ongoing need for a striker and the limited supply of them in Europe means the same names come up again and again, and this time it’s Fichajes claiming the €60m rated forward is on our list with a potential January move on the cards.
Frankly, we just can’t see it happening. The numbers don’t add up, from his salary to his goals to Chelsea’s FFP concerns.
As we’ve said many times before, we can just about see this deal happening as a short term loan with a big fee, if Juventus are desperate to get the striker’s wages off their books – think Falcao or Gonzalo Higuain in the past.
But given he’s an important option for them and given he’s hardly tempting us with an exceptional season, we don’t feel like this deal is any closer than it has been over the last year.
