Man Utd plotting move for "unbelievable" player who snubbed Arsenal, as agent drops transfer hint
| Last updated
Manchester United are interested in signing Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic, according to reports.
The Red Devils have been linked with several strikers this summer, with Erik ten Hag thought to want to invest in a top-class forward at the end of the campaign.
And Vlahovic has been identified as a potential target, claim ESPN.
Despite only moving to Juventus last year, the club could be forced to let the Serbia international leave due to the financial impact of being deducted 15 points for transfer irregularities.
The Daily Mail report that Dusan Vlahovic's agent has hinted at a possible move away from the Allianz Stadium, insisting 'not to rule anything out'.
However, United could face Premier League competition from Arsenal and Chelsea who have also been rumoured with the Serb, according to Italian news outlet Corriere Dello Sport.
The 23-year-old joined the Serie A giants from Fiorentina in January 2022, reportedly snubbing Arsenal in the process.
Sky Italy reported that his agent was not considering moves to Arsenal or north London rivals Tottenham, instead favouring to stay in Italy.
Vlahovic, described as 'unbelievable' by GiveMeSport's Dean Jones, has since gone on to score 16 league goals, though his progress has been hampered by injuries.
According to Italian news outlet La Repubblica (as per AS), Juventus are demanding a fee of £99million million to sell Vlahovic to another club, similar to what Chelsea paid for Mykhailo Mudryk.
Who else could Man Utd sign?
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for Victor Osimhen this summer.
The Napoli forward is top scorer in Serie A, having netted 15 goals in 20 appearances in all competitions this season.
ESPN reported that Napoli will not part ways with the 24-year-old for less than €100 million (£89million), with Paris Saint-Germain also said to be interested.
Meanwhile, speculation surrounding Harry Kane's future has linked the England skipper with United. Although, Ten Hag is thought to prefer a speedier forward, such as Osimhen.
In any case, Ten Hag is likely to have to splash the cash if he is to land a top striker this summer.
