Flocking to Twitter, a number of Manchester City fans have raved over a fresh transfer claim involving Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
It is no secret that City’s sporting director Txiki Begiristain set his sights on signing a centre-forward in the summer transfer window, coming up short in reported attempts to bag Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo. Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland was also linked with the Premier League champions earlier in the year and that seemingly remains the case.
After the departure of club legend and Premier League icon Sergio Aguero, Pep Guardiola’s side are left with just one natural senior striking option in Gabriel Jesus, although the Brazilian has often been deployed out wide this season.
Makeshift options like Ferran Torres and Raheem Sterling are at Guardiola’s disposal as well as promising youngsters like Liam Delap, or he may even revert to the false nine system which brought City so much joy last season. However, that hasn’t stopped City, and by extension Begiristain, from looking at future options.
As reported by La Nazione (via Sport Witness), the agents of Vlahovic have a ‘super offer’ from City in their hands said to include a €6m (£5.09m) salary per season for the player. It is said that this offer is tempting and that City are now the favourites for his signature ahead of ‘second line’ Atletico Madrid.
Flocking to his claim, many Sky Blues supporters have erupted in excitement – check out some of the best reactions from Twitter below.

“Finally getting a striker”
“This is my top target for City. Harry Kane is a waste of our negotiating energy. Haaland’s agent will make next summer miserable. Go get a target. Wrap it up before preseason, let’s play football.”
“Get it done”
“Sign him and Haaland, c’mon”
