Vlahovic’s time in Turin has been very tough as he’s failed to replicate his form from Fiorentina. He’s scored just 10 leagues for Juventus and there’s a major chance that he will be leaving in the summer.
Juventus obviously haven’t made up their mind but rumours are abuzz that the striker wants to leave and find a new challenge at the end of this season. Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Aston Villa have all been linked with him but Real Madrid could turn out to be the number of destination for the Serbian international.
Will Dusan Vlahovic snub Premier League interest and join Madrid?
Aston Villa’s name has been mentioned several times as Unai Emery is keen to add Dusan Vlahovic to his ranks next season but according to journalist Dean Jones, this move is highly unlikely.
Jones has told Give Me Sport: “Someone like Vlahovic, there’s definitely some uncertainty around what happens at Juventus, but if they qualify for the Champions League, I don’t see him leaving.
“Even if they don’t, for him to join a team that’s not in the Champions League would be a pretty big step down for him. I’d say that there are a lot of barriers to overcome with that one.”
Barring Villa, the other three Premier League sides can be ideal destinations for Vlahovic because all of them will be looking to add attacking reinforcements in the summer. Arsenal need a backup to Gabriel Jesus while Chelsea and Manchester United will look to upgrade their forward ranks during the summer.
However, some rumours have suggested that Real Madrid also have him in their sights and they will make a move for him if the Los Blancos were to miss out on Erling Haaland.
Benzema needs a long-term heir and Perez is very eager to bring in Haaland from Manchester City. Obviously, Madrid will knock on City’s door but if they feel Haaland is not ready to move out then they will shift their focus to Dusan Vlahovic.
Vlahovic reportedly wants to play in the Premier League but if Madrid come calling then the 23-year-old should snub English interest and join the Bernabeu outfit.
Obviously, several things will have to fall into place before Madrid are seriously interested in the striker so for the time being clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United remain at the top of the pecking order.
