According to Spanish newspaper Defensa Central, Real Madrid could be preparing an offensive to sign talented 23-year-old Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic during the January transfer window.
Dusan Vlahovic arrived at the Allianz Stadium from Fiorentina in January 2022, at the time one of the most promising young strikers in the world. However, his performance at Juventus was a rollercoaster ride, alternating between moments of brilliance and failures of lesser impact. Last season in particular, he scored 14 goals across all competitions, well below his potential. However, the current 2023/24 season started differently for Vlahovic, as he has already scored four goals and provided one assist in his first four appearances.
Real Madrid have been closely monitoring the Serbian striker’s development and could consider a move in the January transfer window. Curiously, the Merengues turned down the opportunity to sign Vlahovic last summer.
Real Madrid’s interest in Vlahovic dates back to his time at Fiorentina, but until now the club had not made a final decision. However, the situation could change if his main target, Kylian Mbappé, extends his contract with Paris Saint-Germain as expected.
PSG intends to offer Mbappé a lucrative contract in the coming weeks, which would prompt Real Madrid to consider alternatives in the market. Dusan Vlahovic appears to be one of those alternatives and it has been suggested that a move could be possible in January.
Real Madrid are also looking at other options when looking for a striker. Vlahovic’s future therefore depends on Real Madrid’s final decision regarding Kylian Mbappé and how the situation develops in the coming weeks. Merengues fans will be keeping a close eye on the news in this exciting race to sign one of European football’s young talents.
