Chelsea are said to have ratcheted up their interest in Duran after missing out on RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko and Villa are reported to be looking for around £40million for the Colombian.

The 20-year-old has scored eight goals in 49 appearances in all competitions since arriving from MLS outfit Chicago Fire for £18million in January last year.
