Chelsea and PSG rekindle interest in 23-year-old Serie A star

Dusan Vlahovic has been linked to move away from Juventus since summer

Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are reportedly in the race to sign highly-rated Juventus striker, Dusan Vlahovic. Both clubs have identified the Serbian international as a potential solution to their respective attacking woes.

Vlahovic first made his mark at Fiorentina, where his impressive form attracted interest from several top European clubs, including Arsenal. However, it was Juventus who secured his services. Since joining The Old Lady, he has continued to impress with his performances on the Italian stage.

The 23-year-old striker has emerged as one of Serie A's quality marksmen and is now being sought after by some of Europe's top sides. His performances this season have been particularly noteworthy; in just 16 Serie A games for Juventus, he has scored six goals and provided two assists.

Chelsea don't have a legitimate goalscorer in their squad, while Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing for life after Mbappe

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is known to be an admirer of Vlahovic. The club had previously attempted to bring him over during the summer transfer window but failed due to disagreements over a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku.

Despite this setback, Chelsea remains interested in securing Vlahovic’s services as they seek a reliable source of goals for their team. His ability not only as a goal scorer but also as an attacking focal point makes him an attractive prospect for Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, French giants PSG are also eyeing up the Serbian striker as they prepare for life without Kylian Mbappe. The French superstar is nearing the end of his contract at Parc Des Princes with no signs yet of an extension agreement.

Signing Vlahovic could provide PSG with another potent threat upfront alongside Asensio, Ramos and Dembele, ensuring that they remain competitive even if Mbappe departs.

Dusan Vlahovic's impressive performances for Juventus have not gone unnoticed. Both Chelsea and PSG are reportedly prepared to move for the striker as they seek to bolster their attacking options. As the transfer window approaches, it will be interesting to see where this highly-rated Serbian marksman will end up.
