Report: Arsenal and Spurs target Dusan Vlahovic could have £68.5m release clause
Arsenal and Spurs could soon know the maximum amount they would have to pay to sign Dusan Vlahovic, with Calciomercato reporting that a new contract with Fiorentina could include a release clause worth around £68.5 million.
Vlahovic was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer. It came after a campaign in which he scored 21 goals in Serie A.
Both Arsenal and Spurs were reportedly admirers. It was suggested just last month that the North London rivals were monitoring the 21-year-old.
Gianluca Di Marzio claimed in that report that his asking price would start at £51.5 million.
Obviously, Vlahovic ended up staying in Florence. And he has already scored four times for club and country this season.
Unsurprisingly, La Viola are keen to agree a new contract with Vlahovic. And it would appear that the forward is open to extending his terms – but on one condition.
According to Calciomercato, agreeing a release clause is crucial to talks. And it is suggested that it could rise up to £68.5 million.
Arsenal and Spurs surely set for fresh attempts at Vlahovic move amid release clause reports
Neither Arsenal or Spurs signed a new striker in the summer. So it is likely to be a situation that both clubs look to address in one of the upcoming windows.
Vlahovic meanwhile, has established himself as one of the most exciting young strikers playing in Europe.
And it is hard to see him staying in Fiorentina for too long. His new deal is set to run until 2025. But his release clause opens the door for a much sooner exit.
Both Arsenal and Spurs showed some ambition in the market this past summer. So it seems inevitable that the pair will come calling once again in a future window.
