Vlahovic on fire

Dusan Vlahovic is the next taxi off the rank when it comes to star strikers.

The Fiorentina man, still just 21 years old, netted 21 times last campaign, and has proved it was no fluke, scoring 16 in 20 Serie A appearances so far this season.

In doing so, he matched Cristiano Ronaldo’s Serie A record for most goals in a calendar year in Italy, netting a total of 36 goals across 2021.

As a result, he has a host of clubs chasing his signature, having confirmed that he will be leaving Fiorentina before or when his contract expires in 2023.

Arsenal are in need of a striker, while Manchester City are also missing a presence in the final third, having failed in their high-profile summer pursuit of Harry Kane in the last transfer window.

But now, has Vlahovic priced himself out of a move?

Demands revealed for Vlahovic

Earlier this season, it was thought that Fiorentina would demand as much as 80 million euros should suitors for their Serbian star make themselves known in January, a fee that seems unlikely to go up in later windows as a result of his contract.

And while this was a steep price, it is certainly manageable for a few clubs.

However, the Daily Star now claim that, in addition to the fee, Vlahovic is set to demand wages in excess of £200,000 per week after tax, working out at a salary of around 10.5 million per year.

This means that, should he move to the UK, his salary pre-tax would have to work out at a whopping £400,000 per week, a truly astronomical amount.

Will any club be willing to take the hit on the young star?
