Dusan Vlahovic from the Italian first division club AC Florenz has been considered a transfer candidate at FC Bayern in recent weeks. However, the Fiorentina striker has decided to join another club.
The weeks of poker are over: Dusan Vlahovic is now on the hunt for goals for Juventus Turin.
The attacker arrived at his new employer on Friday morning, where the mandatory medical check is pending. The club will officially confirm the transfer shortly.
According to “Sky Italia”, Juventus is digging deep into Vlahovic’s pockets: 70 million euros are due for the Serbian striker, five more million euros can flow to Florence through bonus payments.
Vlahovic also reportedly receives an annual salary of seven million euros. How long his contract in Turin should run is not yet known.
Big exclamation mark to the competition from Juventus
By signing Vlahovic, Juventus is sending a clear signal to the competition. The current fifth in the table had to cede their supremacy in Serie A to Inter last season, and the Milan club are also at the top this season. After 23 matchdays, Juve are already eleven points behind their arch-rivals.
In Vlahovic, one of the best strikers in the league is now switching to the old lady. Only ex-BVB striker Ciro Immobile has also scored 17 goals this season, while Paulo Dybala is the top scorer for Juve with just seven goals.
In any case, the team of coach Massimiliano Allegri has the weakest offensive (34 goals) of the top 6 clubs in Serie A.
Did FC Bayern also deal with Dusan Vlahovic?
According to Italian media reports, Juventus prevailed against well-known competition in courting Vlahovic.
Both Arsenal FC and Bayern Munich have been repeatedly linked with the 14-time Serbian international.
However, the Munich team should only have squinted at an obligation in the event of a premature departure from world footballer Robert Lewandowski.
