Revealed: Chelsea still ready to sign injured EPL striker

Chelsea remain admirers of Aston Villa forward, Jhon Duran, despite his recent injury.

This is according to The Athletic reporter, David Ornstein, who claims that the Blues view the Colombian mainly as a player for the future, and his current condition may not affect their interest in the player.

Ornstein wrote: “Unai Emery is not the biggest fan, but Chelsea do like him.

“Duran, 20, is viewed by the west London team as possessing vast potential and they have held dialogue about possibly doing a deal — provided the price reduces to a level they deem fair.

“The prospect may be complicated by the ex-Chicago Fire forward being injured, but that does not completely rule out a switch as Duran would be seen mainly as a talent for the future.”

Duran picked up an injury during Villa’s goalless draw with Everton in mid-January.

The 20-year-old has made 14 Premier League appearances so far this season, scoring just twice, even though he’s had to play from the bench.
