Kramaric Chelsea


According to Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, Andrej Kramaric has agreed a deal to join the Italian giants Juventus. However, recent reports state that the prodigious young talent has been courted by Chelsea as well.

Di Marzio stated that the London club has met with Kramaric’s father with the hope of securing his services. Meanwhile, Juventus have an agreement in place, worth around €1.5m per season.

It is believed that Chelsea are desperate to hijack the deal and are even willing to match Rijeka’s valuation of Kramaric, which is thought to in the region of €10m and €12m.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Kramaric talked up the possibility of a move to Juventus.

“Playing for Juve would be a dream for any player in the Croatian league, I’d love to play in Italy one day”.

“Juventus have world-class strikers, but I believe in my abilities and I know I’d be able to show my worth to the fans and the Coach”, he said.
