TRANSFER: Chelsea interested in signing Atalanta 14-goals forward



Chelsea are absolutely not keen on a move for Atalanta centre-forward Duvan Zapata in spite of claims to the contrary

That’s according to Colombian journalist Diego Rueda, who says a policy of not landing players over 30 years of age means the former Napoli star is not a target for the Blues.

Zapata is enjoying another fine campaign with the Italian side, with 14 goals and 12 assists in 38 matches in all competitions, earning the player attention around Europe.

He was recently named as a possible target for Chelsea, who are rumoured to be on the hunt for a striker in the summer after Timo Werner’s difficult maiden season in England.

The reports linking the Blues with an interest stated Duvan was being eyed as an alternative to Erling Haaland, should the club fail to convince the Norwegian to move from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

However, that has now been dismissed out of hand by Diego, who says there is no such interest in the South American.

“What is Chelsea’s interest in Duván? None, there is no offer, there is no interest from Chelsea for the Colombian player,” Rueda told Caracol Radio.

“Chelsea took a decision two seasons ago; not to sign players over 30 years of age. They also have Giroud and Timo Werner, so although they would think of letting Timo go, there is no chance.”
