Newcastle United have reportedly now joined the transfer race to sign Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: A man in demand
With the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Juventus all reportedly keeping a close eye on Vlahovic, it is clear that the Serbia international is a man in high demand.
Should Newcastle sign Vlahovic?
He has scored no fewer than 12 goals in just 14 games in total over all competitions so far this season, and has even chipped in with three assists (Transfermarkt).
The crazy thing is that Vlahovic is only 21 years of age, and so promised to become one of the hottest strikers in Europe over the next few years.
The Latest: Newcastle in race
The Serie A club currently reportedly want a transfer fee of €80m (£67.1m) for his signature, which could even be a stretch for their new mega-rich owners.
The Verdict: Get it done
The North East club may have to do a lot to sell Vlahovic the long-term vision on Tyneside, given that they currently find themselves in a relegation battle.
However, if a deal is to be done, then the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium must be the first ones to pounce, given his high demand.
Described as ‘really crazy’ by former Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov back in March, Vlahovic is a player with fire in his belly, and so would surely be hungry for success in the Premier League.
His six-foot-three frame makes him a beast in both boxes, as emphasised by him winning 2.2 of his aerial duels per match in the Serie A so far this campaign (WhoScored).
Nonetheless, Vlahovic would certainly be a statement signing by the Magpies, that could then help attract other big names to the club.
