Dušan Vlahović has been continuously linked with clubs ever since Fiorentina chief Rocco Commisso confirmed on Tuesday the striker will not renew his contract.
On October 5th, TuttoMercatoWeb reported Manchester City could ‘return to charge’ for the 21-year-old after looking at him in the summer.
Juventus are named as the main candidate in Italy looking to sign the frontman. That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the Turin club must ‘beware’ of the Citizens and Atlético Madrid.
It’s explained a fee of €45m is needed to convince Commisso to cut ties with the Serbia international.
In addition to this, the player must be offered an annual salary of at least €6m, and €10m must be paid to his agent as commission.
These are significant figures, although the transfer fee may ‘drop slightly’ since Vlahović has refused to sign a new deal.
Juve are hoping to acquire the Serbian’s services, but Pep Guardiola’s side and the La Liga winners are in the mix.
Atlético proposed a €4m per season contract in the summer, yet were unable to seal the deal. Diego Simeone’s side will ‘try again’ and at the moment are ‘in pole’, together with City, to sign Vlahović.
The Fiorentina star has been in fine form since the start of last season, scoring 27 goals and registering three assists in all competitions. If he continues to shine, Vlahović will become one of the most sought out players in the coming windows.
