Juventus and Chelsea Talking Vlahovic and Lukaku Swap

Juventus and Chelsea have begun negotiating a trade between Dusan Vlahovic and Romelu Lukaku, which would include a substantial amount of cash for Bianconeri. The Serb has struggled to fetch strong bids this summer.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Blues didn’t entertain such a possibility earlier because they had received large offers for the Belgian for Saudi Arabia and due to Inter’s interest in a reunion at the time.

The Nerazzurri moved on to other targets after he left them hanging. The Old Lady is the only viable destination at this stage. Juventus and Chelsea are negotiating the monetary portion of the deal involving Vlahovic and Lukaku. The Turin outfit wants more than €30/35M considering the age gap between the two strikers.

The two clubs will continue to haggle in the next few days because there don’t appear to be alternatives to such a solution. The Pensioners already signed Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku in the role this window.

Our Take on Juventus, Chelsea, Vlahovic, and Lukaku

Since the interest in the ex-Fiorentina star has been very tepid, it would be a logical way to go. While nonsensical on the surface for the Bianconeri, the deal combines financial reasons, as they need to make up for the missing Champions League money, and technical ones, as the ex-Inter marksman is a better fit for Massimiliano Allegri’s style. A large enough check will lead to a positive outcome.
