Agent confirms Chelsea still looking to Premier League star!

Chelsea, savic

The agent of Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran has confirmed Chelsea’s interest in the forward.

Despite the fact that CHELSEA have no manager right now after they just decided to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino – he board will still look to get some transfer deals done whether a new coach is at the club or not.

Sky Sports News reported Chelsea’s desire to sign the Villa striker in the January transfer window and were looking to reignite their interest in the Villa star once that transfer window opened up.

But despite the fact that Pochettino is no longer boss of the club – Duran’s agent Jonathan Herrera says the interest remains and he is fully expecting an offer to be made in the next few months.

“He is a player who has a contract with Aston Villa, he ended up doing very well and the coach is counting on him,” Herrera told El VBar Caracol.

“It is a club that, having got into the Champions League is a great opportunity, but we know he wants to play, he wants to go out and play, we are going to see. Now the market is opening up, the club is looking at some options and so are we.

“The interest has always been there. The fact that Pochettino continues or leaves the club [shouldn’t affect], the one who want him in the end is the club.

“He is a player that if they change coach or not, we will see what happens, but there has always been interest. Let’s see how we can handle it and make sure Aston Villa are ready.”

Pochettino wanted Duran in the January window and was interested in bringing him to the club in the summer – maybe the new boss does not want the Villa man – maybe he has other targets.

That CHELSEA board dont really know what players will improve the squad and it will be interesting to see what manager they hire and what players are signed.
