Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran has addressed speculation linking him with a big-money move to CHELSEA this summer.

Duran is thought to be happy at Villa Park but would be eager to move to Stamford Bridge if they push through with their interest. It is thought the striker believes he would work well with Maresca and suits the club’s vision.

Asked about speculation he could join the club this summer, Duran Gol Caracol while on international duty at Copa America: ‘The options of the other teams, I don’t know, I am not aware now.

‘I’m focused on the national team, at the Copa America, wanting to add minutes, supporting the team a lot. For those topics of a possible move, I already have other people who take care of that.’

Former Premier League striker Emile Heskey has claimed he can see why the club wants Duran – He told OLBG: “I quite like Jhon Duran but he hasn’t played enough since coming in at Aston Villa. But he has been lively and very direct when he has played. He always wants to have shots at goal and maybe that is because he is trying to show the manager what he is capable of.

“He’s very direct and that’s probably why Chelsea are looking at him to help bolster their forward line, Chelsea have been blessed with forwards over the years but the pressure is on straight away.”
