Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso admitted that many clubs are interested in Dusan Vlahovic. However, they do not want to sell the Serbian striker.

Last season marked the maturity of Dusan Vlahovic. The 21-year-old scored 21 goals in 37 Serie A games for Fiorentina, more than three times more than in the 2019-20 season (6). In the new season, Vlahovic scored twice in La Viola’s opening match against Cosenza at Coppa Italia.

Because of everything, Vlahovic received a lot of attention from the big guys in Europe. Manchester City, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid are said to have voiced their desire to recruit the Serbian striker to Fiorentina.

However, the host club wants to keep Vlahovic for at least another year. Fiorentina President Commisso revealed to TGR Toscana: “Fiorentina does not want to sell Vlahovic. We have also offered him a valid contract extension.”

“There are a number of clubs interested in Vlahovic, but I have not put a bid yet. I want him to stay here for another season.”

Serbian players are interested in many clubs

Vlahovic is considered a comprehensive striker with good body, skillful feet and acumen in scoring. The outstanding qualities help the striker born in 2000 become the target of many famous clubs across Europe.

Atletico see Vlahovic as a long-term successor to Luis Suarez. Man City are looking for a replacement for Sergio Aguero to leave the Etihad Stadium as a free agent after the 2020-21 season. When Harry Kane was about to leave, Tottenham considered Vlahovic as the leading role.

Fiorentina president Commisso has previously stated that he would think about releasing Vlahovic if he received an offer of 100 million euros (£86 million). But currently, no partner has met this requirement.
