24-year-old Julian Alvarez is one of the most reliable goal scorers in England. The forward has impressed audiences on almost every occasion he gets to take to the pitch for Manchester City. Despite his world-class ball-playing ability and hold-up play, the natural No.9 is forced to play second fiddle to Erling Haaland at the club.

While many argue that Alvarez has the ability to lead the attacking line-up at any club in Europe, the time may have arrived for him to make the move from Manchester City. Alvarez made a total of 27 goal contributions for City, out of which eleven were goals in the Premier League. In a recent interview, the player opened up about the attention he has been receiving from other clubs.

I'm calm and feel good and happy at Manchester City. We will see what happens.

The player has been called up by Lionel Scaloni to represent the World Cup winners and defending Copa America champions at the upcoming tournament. He made the starting XI against Ecuador in a 1-0 win in a friendly.

Chelsea prioritize signing of Bundesliga striker over Julian Alvarez

Despite all the attention Julian Alvarez has been receiving from clubs across Europe, Chelsea have been the frontrunner in the race for his signature. Having already signed a former Manchester City star in Cole Palmer, Alvarez’s arrival may be the final block of the puzzle for the Blues. However, reports also suggest that Alvarez is not the primary target for Todd Boehly‘s club.
