Chelsea’s move to sign €17m Striker Sparks Intrigue as Agent Takes the Lead

“Transfer Buzz Alert: Chelsea’s Eye on €17m Striker Sparks Intrigue as Agent Takes the Lead”

Jhon Duran’s links to Chelsea are being driven by his agent, one pundit on Sky Sports has speculated.

Dan Bardell is a fan of Duran’s club Aston Villa, so it feels like he has some links on the inside. Speaking this morning, he was convinced that the sudden appearance of transfer chatter connecting the young striker with a surprising move to Chelsea were coming from the player’s representative as he tries to push Villa towards a sale.

“There are rumours about Chelsea. I think Jhon Duran’s agent has been working overtime at the moment, floating stories out there and putting feelers out,” Bardell said in quotes picked up by Caughtoffside.

“There’s something up because these stories don’t just come out of the blue, journalists don’t generally make things up, so it feels very much like his agent is floating stories to put feelings out to either try and force Villa’s hand or force other teams’ hands.”

This would rather explain the sudden surge of links between Duran and many clubs, including Chelsea. He doesn’t look like he’s going to knock Ollie Watkins out of his starting spot, and pushing for a move might be just what the agent is keen on. He moved for €17m a year ago (Tranfermarkt), and unless things change in the next 6 months, it seems likely he’ll move on at some point.
