Juventus does not seem to want to linger in realizing the recruitment of Fiorentina bomber, Dusan Vlahovic . The Serbian passport player is increasingly stealing the attention by becoming La Viola’s goal machine.
Juventus even targeted that Dusan Vlahovic’s move was done faster. They want to bring the player in the winter transfer window or January 2022.
La Gazzetta dello Sport via Italian Football , Wednesday (11/24/2021), reported that the Old Lady has accelerated the pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic from the target of other clubs. Juventus are reportedly ready to offer 50 million euros or Rp801 billion to Fiorentina to bring Dusan Vlahovic.
The newspaper claims Juventus know the player is interested in a move to the Allianz Stadium. There is confidence Dusan Vlahovic will agree and his arrival to Turin is only a matter of time.
Still from the report, Juventus is willing to pay according to the offer submitted, which is in the figure of 50 million euros. Although the actual number is still far from the value Fiorentina requested.
On the other hand, Fiorentina as the owner of Dusan Vlahovic actually does not want his player to join Juventus. The team based at the Artemio Franchi actually wanted Vlahovic to move outside of Italy.
Fiorentina have asked for 70 million euros to let the 21-year-old leave the club and Juventus already face competition from potential suitors abroad.
The historical factor is that many Fiorentina players have often been hijacked by Juventus since the era of Roberto Baggio. Then, if Vlahovic resonates with the Bianconeri, he will struggle against the Fiorentina who have catapulted his name.
Dusan Vlahovic has shown his sharpness as a goal machine so far. He has scored 10 goals in 13 Serie A games this season. Last season, Vlahovic scored 21 goals in 37 league games with the purples.
Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with interest. While Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in the 21-year-old striker.
Italian League: Dusan Vlahovic Rejects Arsenal For Waiting For Bigger Offers
Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic reportedly turned down an offer to join Arsenal . Vlahovic is reluctant to defend the Gunners because he is still waiting for a bigger offer.
Last season, he managed to gain 21 goals from 40 matches in all competitions.
Dusan Vlahovic’s brilliant performance made Arsenal smitten. After failing to land Vlahovic in the summer of 2021, the Gunners have made another approach.
Reportedly Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fiorentina regarding the transfer value of Vlahovic.
Clap with one hand
nfortunately, Arsenal’s interest in Vlahovic is reportedly one-sided. Agent Dusan Vlahovic is said to have refused to receive phone calls from the Gunners who wanted to negotiate.
They postponed talks because they were waiting for interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City or Juventus who were also monitoring Dusan Vlahovic’s situation.
“The problem is Arsenal can’t talk to the player’s agent. They don’t answer the phone,” transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio was quoted as saying by Sky Italia.
Reasons to Reject Arsenal
Italian football agent who is also a lawyer, Claudio Pasqualin, revealed the reason why Dusan Vlahovic refused the proposal from Arsenal. Pasqualin said Vlahovic was still hoping for a bigger offer.
“Basically there is a bigger offer. It is evident that he has the contacts, relationships and perspective with the team that is offering more money,” Pasqualin said.
“Arsenal are one of the most coveted teams in the world, but if Real Valladolid made a double offer, people would think about it.”
“Basically, I see the economic aspect as more relevant. He went to play there: it wouldn’t be surprising, he has the numbers to do it,” said Claudio Pasqualin.
