Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Dusan Vlahovic

Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Dusan Vlahovic -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly now eyeing up a move to sign emerging superstar Dusan Vlahovic.

The Lowdown: Vlahovic on the rise

Not many football fans may have heard of Vlahovic a year or two ago, but he is really starting to emerge as a rising superstar in Serie A.

Italian media have described him as a ‘force of nature’ and have likened him to established goal machines Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku (Football Italia), and it is hard not to see why.

Should Newcastle sign Vlahovic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Serbia international is a monster at six-foot-two-inches tall, and has already hit the 10-goal mark this season, adding to the impressive 21 that he managed in the Serie A last term (Transfermarkt).

His record for his country is no different, with six strikes in 12 games so far.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per Tuttosport (via Sport Witness), St. James’ Park could be Vlahovic’s destination next campaign.

They have been described as being ‘submersed in Saudi dollars’, and having the ‘economic power’ to join in any auction for the Fiorentina star.

Vlahovic is seen as a ‘suitable target’ for the North East club, but they face competition from both Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus for his signature.

His deal expires in 2023, and so Fiorentina are expected to sell him for a transfer fee of between €50-60m (£42.8-51.4m).

The Verdict: Realistic?

With Fiorentina currently sitting in seventh spot in the Serie A, they are at risk of missing out on European football for next season, meaning that Vlahovic may not have too much motivation to stay.

Of course, the Tyneside outfit would need to ensure that they are not relegated first, but a move to the Premier League may appeal to him.

His goal record speaks for itself, and players like Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson would surely love to play with someone of his quality.

Plus, he is still just 21 years of age, and so even if a move to the Magpies does not work out for him, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium can always look to sell him on after.
