Arsenal and Tottenham among suitors for Dusan Vlahovic
A whole host of clubs are expected to make moves for Serbia and Fiorentina man Dusan Vlahovic in the coming transfer windows, with the La Viola striker the next top striker in the world behind Erling Haaland.
Vlahovic equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s Serie A goalscoring record, netting 33 goals across 2021 as he almost singlehandedly wins games for his side. But, with 18 months left on his contract, and having rejected previous advances from the Serie A outfit, he is expected to depart in either the January or summer transfer windows, netting his side a hefty side in the process.
Dusan Vlahovic matched Cristiano Ronaldo’s record. Most Serie A goals in a calendar year since 1960. 33 goals. ⭐️🇷🇸 #Vlahovic

Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with the star man, as well as both Manchester Clubs, but the Gunners have been dealt a blow both in their pursuit of the striker, and also perhaps to their stature within the game.
Vlahovic would prefer Tottenham over Arsenal
Now, speaking to Wettfreunde.net, transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio revealed the possible destinations for Vlahovic, and they notably didn’t include Arsenal.
The Italian revealed:
His agents do not want to speak to Arsenal. They think Arsenal is not enough for him and his career.
Worse still, he claimed that London rivals Tottenham would be a far more attractive prospect, saying:
They think Tottenham or Man City or Man Utd are better for him.
Tottenham, with Antonio Conte as coach, is the right choice for him. He could be a replacement for Harry Kane or even play with him for a year. He can get better with Kane.
I think he can learn from a top player like Kane. A year behind or with him – that should be right for him.
I don’t think that Man City, with Guardiola’s style of play, with all the strikers’ movements, is the right tactical solution for Vlahovic at this moment.
Has the power really shifted in North London?
