Fiorentina want €50m-€60m for Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic

According to Tuttosport (h/t Liverpool Echo), Serie A outfit Fiorentina have slapped a valuation of €50m-€60m on striker Dusan Vlahovic, who is a transfer target for Liverpool.

The 21-year-old Serbian striker has been with Serie A side Fiorentina since 2018, having signed from Partizan Belgrade in his homeland.

Having settled into the club nicely, Vlahovic exploded into top form in the 2020/21 campaign, banging in 21 goals and setting up two more for his teammates in 37 Serie A encounters. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Vlahovic’s explosive form had put him on the radars of several top clubs, including Liverpool. The Reds can certainly use a striker of his ilk considering that Roberto Firmino had another underwhelming campaign in front of goal last time out.

Moreover, with Divock Origi out of favour, Jurgen Klopp does not have any senior natural centre-forwards at his disposal to provide cover and competition for Firmino. Vlahovic, to that end, would be a quality addition for Liverpool.

To that end, Liverpool are said to have made contact with Fiorentina to check the availability of the Serbian international and the possibility of a transfer in the ongoing summer window.

And, as per the report, the Serie A giants have reportedly slapped a price tag of €50m-€60m on the Serbian international.

As iterated earlier, Liverpool could certainly do with a striker of Vlahovic’s ilk. However, the price tag does seem a bit excessive considering that he has had just one good season behind him and has not played outside Italy.

As such, it will be interesting to see if Liverpool would be interesting to shell out such a sum for the 21-year-old this summer.
