Liverpool may be in the market for a new attacker this summer – and Dusan Vlahovic appears to be a target.
The Reds splashed the cash on Diogo Jota last summer, and he has made a big impact, but Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been off the boil.
Another attacker may be needed, especially if Divock Origi leaves this summer, and Vlahovic is an interesting name in the mix.
Tuttosport claim that Liverpool are in the race to sign Vlahovic, competing with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old has been in superb form this season, hitting 13 gaols and two assists in 28 Serie A games, emerging as one of Europe’s top young strikers.
Signed from Partizan Belgrade in 2018, Vlahovic is a big and physical striker at 6ft 3in tall, meaning he could provide something a little different to Liverpool’s current strikers.
That report from Tuttosport suggests that Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso is due into Florence from New York imminently, and one of his top priorities is sorting out a new contract with Vlahovic.
Vlahovic has a deal until 2023, but Fiorentina are determined to get him signed up for even longer, meaning Liverpool’s hopes of signing him this summer may rest on the coming days.
