Fiorentina ST Dusan Vlahovic
Dusan Vlahovic is probably going to be too expensive for Liverpool and several other clubs, because he was such a massive breakout star in the second half of the Serie A season. Fiorentina know his value as a top young striker, and they are going to try to get more than 50 million euros for the Serbian international.
After a promising start to the season. Vlahovic exploded with 12 goals in a span of 9 matches in the spring. It seemed like he could not miss in front of goal, and he was constantly popping up in dangerous areas. He’s a fantastic shooter with no shortage of athletic ability.
Though he only has three assists and a passing accuracy percentage under 70, WhoScored.com tagged the 21-year-old striker with nearly two fouls drawn per game. That shows you he can impact the game significantly on the ball and help a top team out in more ways than just his goals. And that’s huge because, well, he scored a LOT of goals.
The Fiorentina man will want to prove his hot streak in the spring was not a flash in the pan. But judging by how dominant he was, we have to say he looks legit. There’s a risk in splashing so much money for Vlahovic, but if his price goes down in the future, Liverpool should be very interested. Vlahovic has huge upside at 21 and could become a truly world-class striker.
