Chelsea have been given permission to discuss personal terms with Aston Villa’s Jhon Duran,

Chelsea had expressed an interest in signing Duran in the January transfer window, but failed to get a transfer deal done as Aston Villa had no intention of letting the star leave half way through a very exciting season.

However – CHELSEA are in the market for a new striker this summer and according to Colombia’s Guillermo Arango, the club have now reached an agreement with Villa over a £42m transfer fee.

Now –  according to The Telegraph.  It’s said a deal between the two clubs is broadly agreed, with Chelsea facing a few hurdles before completing a £40m move.

Speaking last month, Duran’s agent Jonathan Herrera, suggested that the striker was unhappy with his lack of playing time at Villa.

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

‘Now the market is opening up, the club is looking at some options and so are we.’

We are sure that Duran is a very good striker and could develop into an even better one – but at the end of the day – he is no better than Nicolas Jackson – he is no better than Christopher Nkunku – it could be a waste of money.

CHELSEA needs to sign a striker that can bang in 20-30 or even 40 goals a season – we cannot see Duran doing that even in the best of Premier League sides – he cant even get the game time he wants at Villa.

Chelsea fans will surely be hoping this is not true.
