Chelsea are considering a deal for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic as new manager Mauricio Pochettino seeks to strengthen his squad but they will have to compete with PSG.
Serbia international Vlahovic scored 14 goals across all competitions last season, and according to a previous report from Mail Sport, Juventus is apparently willing to sell him for just £21m if Chelsea agree to include Romelu Lukaku in a trade.
Juventus are said to look for £77m for the 23-year-old, a fee that Chelsea may find difficult to justify without European competition improving their bottom line.

Last season, Vlahovic appeared in 27 Serie A games for Juventus, scoring ten league goals. He was signed for £66m from Fiorentina last summer and is still under contract until 2026.
PSG are also said to be interested in signing Vlahovic, and their offer may be more appealing to the Serbian as they compete for Champions League glory.
Despite the departure of Lionel Messi and speculation regarding the future of Kylian Mbappe, the French team will be eager to defend their Ligue 1 title on a national level.
This summer, Chelsea has already been actively adding to their attacking line.
They announced in June that Christopher Nkunku, who had scored 58 goals in the previous two seasons for RB Leipzig, had been signed for £53m.
They announced Nicolas Jackson as their newest forward at the very end of the month after signing him for £32m from Villarreal.
The 2022–23 season’s final eight games saw the 22-year-old score nine goals.
