It has again been claimed that Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran really, really wants to complete his much anticipated move to CHELSEA.

The centre-forward scored a modest eight goals in 37 appearances in all competitions last season and it is believed we see the 20-year-old as a potential answer to their striker problems.

Duran is thought to be happy at Villa Park but would be eager to move to the 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.

It is reported that he has asked his agent to get a deal done despite no formal proposal being made, and Permission has been granted by Villa for the club to discuss personal terms but nothing is doing so far.

Unai Emery’s recent comments suggest that the Blues are right to target the striker despite him having a reported £42m price tag. Speaking after Duran bagged a brace against Liverpool, the former Arsenal manager said: “He is very young – 20 years old.

“His potential, it is impossible to predict how far he is going to get. I believe in him.

“It is different football in Colombia. Tactically, the football is very different in the Premier League.

“We are working with him a lot. I know he is going to score, get chances and use his power.

“His potential is clear, but we need to manage him as a young person. But today I am very happy with how he helped us because this is the consequence – we drew.”
