The Fiorentina striker has been identified as one of the club’s potential targets as Ole Gunnar Solskjær looks to add more reinforcements in the attacking unit.
Reports in the British and Italian media claim Manchester United will look to sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Serbia international was signed by Fiorentina in July 2018 from Partizan for a fee of 1.95 million euros. The 21-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The striker banged in 12 goals and provided 2 assists in 30 matches for Fiorentina this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Serbia.
Dusan Vlahovic has also left his mark at the international stage after netting two goals in five senior appearances for the Serbia national team.
The Serbia international has impressed in Serie A this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
The Red Devils have earmarked Fiorentina striker Vlahovic as their target, with Solskjær being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Dusan Vlahovic is a traditional number nine, having all types of finishes in his locker.
According to the report, “Manchester United are considering a summer move for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic. The Red Devils are currently happy with veteran Edinson Cavani as their backup to Anthony Martial up front. Cavani, however, could be heading back to South America this summer. His father recently told TyC Sports in Argentina that it was 60 percent likely that his son would move to a South American club this summer. United do have an option to extend Cavani for a year, but would not exercise that if the player wanted to move on. And according to Correire Dello Sport, if United let Cavani leave, they would go for Vlahovic.”
