Chelsea are interested in signing Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran.

The Colombian forward’s agent has confirmed that Chelsea’s interest has been consistent, regardless of potential managerial changes at the club.

However, the move hinges on certain factors, despite Chelsea’s interest.

Villa’s stance on Duran’s potential transfer is uncertain, especially since he has been dealing with an injury and has not had many starts this season​. The striker has shown promise, scoring four goals in all competitions despite limited opportunities​.

For Chelsea, acquiring Duran could add much-needed depth and quality to their attacking options, addressing their ongoing struggle with goal-scoring consistency​.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Aston Villa are waiting for Chelsea to offer at least one player as a potential makeweight.

Aston Villa are targeting Chelsea duo Conor Gallagher and Ian Maatsen, and are hoping to use Chelsea’s interest in Jhon Duran as a springboard to signing their targets ahead of a first ever Champions League experience.
