Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid are willing to go the distance for the services of Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic.
According to a report by Tutto Juve, Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid are all interested in the services of Dusan Vlahovic. The 23-year-old striker has been doing a great job for Juventus in the ongoing season and his performances have attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Vlahovic came through the ranks at Partizan before making a name for himself while playing for Fiorentina. After a successful start to life in Italy, the 23-year-old joined Juventus in the winter of 2020. It was a big money move that saw him join the Italian giants.
But, he couldn’t really get off to a great start. While he did score every now and then, Vlahovic failed to have the kind of impact that was expected from him. However, things have improved for him of late. He already has five goal contributions in his six league outings this season.
The Serbian international’s red-hot form has attracted the attention of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea. Los Blancos parted ways with Karim Benzema in the summer and they haven’t signed a replacement yet. While they might be managing the situation well without a world-class striker, they are expected to sign one soon and the 23-year-old is one of their targets.
Arsenal have two quality strikers in their ranks at this point in time but Mikel Arteta is still keen on signing someone who is a bit more physical and can guarantee goals. The Spanish manager feels Vlahovic could be a great fit for the club.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have struggled for goals in the ongoing season. While they do have a few options up top, they haven’t delivered so far. And, Mauricio Pochettino is seriously considering pushing for a new world-class number nine. The 23-year-old Serbian international is a part of his target list.
The report suggests that Vlahovic is valued at around €80 million and all three of the clubs would be willing to pay that much to land him at the club. But, with his contract at Juventus running until the summer of 2026, the Italian giants are unlikely to sell him for less than €100 million and at this stage, they are considering offering him a new deal.
