Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic put up for sale by Fiorentina as club chief confirms transfer talks with Prem clubs
21st January 2022

FIORENTINA want to sell Dusan Vlahovic during the January transfer window and admit there have been talks with Premier League clubs.

Vlahovic poses as Arsenal's top target this month but has also been linked with Prem rivals, such as Tottenham and Newcastle.

And the Serie A giants' director Joe Barone has confirmed the club is open to selling the striker this month but insists there has been no agreement with the Gunners.

It was reported that the north Londoners had an £88million bid accepted by the Italian outfit, but Barone denies those claims.

The Fiorentina director added that he hasn't heard back from the Serbia international's representatives regarding his intentions.

Barone told La Nazione: “Some English clubs have made contact, but there is no agreement yet. We are open [to selling].

“I haven’t heard anything from them [Vlahovic's representatives], I had asked Vlahovic’s agent to be clear, but I haven’t heard anything, no contacts at all."

However, Vlahovic is reportedly keen to stay in Italy and prefers a move to Juventus.

The 21-year-old also appears to be against a transfer this month as he is in no rush with his contract expiring in June 2023.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve have offered €35m (£29.2m) plus Dejan Kulusevski to sign the Serbian in January.

However, that doesn't meet Fiorentina’s asking price or the ex-Partizan star's demands as he has requested a salary of €8m (£6.7m) per year.

Vlahovic has been on fire this season as he has registered a whopping total of 20 goals and four assists in 24 matches.
