Dusan Vlahovic continues to be linked with a January exit from Fiorentina, with La Viola preferring to sell him in the winter market, and preferably abroad, rather than waiting until the summer and giving Juventus a better shot at the striker, writes the SportsWitness.
As all the drama continues around the Serbian, it’s not putting him off on the pitch. So far this season, the 21-year-old has scored 15 goals in 17 Serie A matches, which justifies the interest building.
He’s scored 10 goals across his last seven league games, and his refusal to sign a renewal means it’s just a matter of when he leaves and who he joins.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have been linked since the summer window. At that time it was thought Spurs would go for the signing if they lost Harry Kane to Pep Guardiola’s side, and that City would swoop if they failed to get the England captain.
That didn’t happen, so it’s all eyes to the next window.
Lorenzo Amoruso, who played for Fiorentina and is now a pundit, believes Tottenham and Manchester City are the likeliest options for a January move.
Viola News quote him as saying: “City and Tottenham are the only two who can take him now, but he doesn’t want to leave in January. If this continues, the auction will go off anyway in the summer as the English teams have no problem offering insane figures.”
Fiorentina’s main aim continues to be avoiding a sale to Juventus, which can only benefit the English clubs.
