Journalist claims Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic is not keen on Arsenal move due to Manchester United’s interest

In an interview, as quoted by the Daily Mail, transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio claimed that Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic is not interested in joining Arsenal due to interest from Manchester United.

The Serbian national team player has taken his performance to a new level this season. He scored 21 times last season and has scored a further 16 league goals in the current campaign. Thus, he equaled Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for most Serie A goals in a calendar year (33). Thus, his stock is definitely rising and a large number of clubs are eager to move.

Man United is understandably among them. The Red Devils can get Edinson Cavani out of contract this summer. In fact, Anthony Martial could also be heading for an exit in January. It will thus be great to pick up a talent like Vlahovic, but there will be a lot of competition for his signature.

One club that hardly has a chance of getting his services is Arsenal. The Gunners have performed well so far, but the Fiorentina star is not keen on a switch to the Emirates. Gianluca di Marzio explained the player’s position in a little more detail.

‘It depends on which project how much money he gets. Arsenal, for example, his agents do not want to talk to them. They think Arsenal are not enough for him and his career. ‘

“They think Tottenham or Man City or Man United are better for him … I do not know if Tottenham will spend all the money, but the club should be the right one for him at this moment of his career.”

Huge transfer boost

Although Di Marzio believes Spurs may also be the right one for him, it is an open race until the finish line is crossed. The player’s representatives may have a club in mind, while the striker may have his own ambitions. Either way, he wants a platform where he can take his game to the next level.

Man City and Tottenham can offer him that opportunity, but so can Man United. The Theater of Dreams has been home to some of the best talent in world football for the past three decades. We have managed to lure football’s crème da le crème to Old Trafford, and buying Vlahovic would be no different.

In addition, we have the prestige of being one of the most successful clubs in England. Man City are on the rise, while Tottenham can get there in the next decade or so. But the Red Devils have been around for a while and our badge certainly has more value in the English game.

More Manchester United news

The final decision might be made by the player and his representatives. Man United can try their best to lure him to Old Trafford because the prospect of him playing alongside Ronaldo is simply mouth-watering. In fact, once the Portuguese national team player has hung up his boots, Vlahovic can even lead the front line for several more years. But only time will tell whether Old Trafford faithful can witness this in the near future.

For now, we need to make sure we get out of the winter transfer window as a stronger team than we should into it. Signing Vlahovic would be one of the smartest steps we could take right now, but transfers are not that easy to implement and we may have to wait a while before we hear anything solid about this development.
