Jhon Duran: Focused on Villa, dreams of Milan and Chelsea

Jhon Duran denies Milan and Chelsea interest, focused on Aston Villa. Yet, he admits dreaming of playing there as a child.

In the January transfer window, there have been links between the Colombia international and Milan and Chelsea, but he remains unaware of any interest from either of the two clubs.

Jhon Duran told Birmingham Live: “I have my head in Aston Villa.

“I’m not really interested in those things, I mainly stay away from social media [and noise] and focus on family,” he continued.

“I am not aware of interests in Milan or Chelsea. They are giant clubs, but I have no knowledge of anything. As a child, you dream of playing there.”

At the start of January, there were reports of Duran being presented as an option to Milan. However, the Rossoneri are delaying any move for a center-forward in the January transfer window, influenced by Luka Jovic’s impressive performances at the Stadio Meazza.

Having scored five goals in his last seven appearances with the Serie A giants across all competitions, the Serbia international, Luka Jovic, has significantly influenced the decision of the Rossoneri. Consequently, they are prioritizing the signing of a new center-back in the ongoing month.

The 20-year-old Duran has netted four goals in 23 appearances across all competitions for Aston Villa this season.

Thus, he joined the Premier League side in the January 2023 transfer window in a €16.64 million deal from Chicago Fire FC.
