Chelsea eye swap deal for €70m player

Chelsea could pull off a major swap deal this summer.

The player being targeted by Chelsea is Dusan Vlahovic, who joined Juventus in January 2022 for £66.6m and has scored 23 goals in 63 matches for the Italian giants.

According to reports from Gazzetta Dello Sport and Corriere Dello Sport, Chelsea and Juventus could work on a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku and Vlahovic.

Vlahovic has been linked with a move away from Juventus after an underwhelming campaign while Lukaku’s future looks to be away from Stamford Bridge despite the Blues’ lack of striking options at present.

Lukaku was sold to Inter Milan in 2019 from Manchester United. The Belgian had an impressive first stint with the Serie A side, scoring 23 and assisting two in 36 league ties in 2019/20. He then netted 24 and assisted 10 in 36 league matches during 2020/21 when Inter were crowned Serie A champions.

Chelsea bought Lukaku from the Italian outfit after that impressive season but he had a poor return stint with Chelsea. The Blues then loaned him back to Inter for the last campaign.

Lukaku’s second stint in Italy did not go to plan, though. He scored just 10 league goals and capped off his loan spell by missing some big chances in the Champions League final.
