On Friday, January 28th, 2022 it was announced that one of the best young strikers, Dušan Vlahović, was in the process of completing a medical with Juventus in order to transfer from Fiorentina to Juventus in what is anticipated to be one of the most impactful transitions of the transfer window.
Juve recently tweeted a video clip of Vlahović as he signed autographs while posing for photos with the fans of Juventus just prior to entering the Juve medical building.
According to sources, Juventus will apparently pay Fiorentina the transfer fee of 67 million euros ($75 million) for Vlahović, and the transfer includes another potential 8 million euros ($9 million) for hitting specific bonuses.
Friday, January 28th, 2022 is actually Vlahović’s birthday as he has now turned 22 – years – old, and he has scored an amazing 20 – goals over the course of 24 – matches throughout all competitions for Fiorentina during the 2021 – 2022 European football season. Dušan is right there with Lazio’s Ciro Immobile at the top of the Italian Serie A League scoring charts.
Presently sitting in 5th – place in the Italian Serie A League table is Juventus who has struggled to replace the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo ever since Ronaldo moved to the Manchester United football club during the last offseason. Juve has only scored 34 – goals throughout this season which is less than any of the top 10 – football clubs in the Italian Serie A League except for Torino.
The Serbia international player in Vlahović could possibly be the best fitting football player to turn that stat around as he is a goal scoring machine. Dušan just matched Ronaldo’s achievement of scoring 33 – league goals during a single calendar year.
Juventus is also forced to play without their injured winger Federico Chiesa, and Vlahović can help pick up some of the slack for Juve in Chiesa’s absence.
“Dusan Vlahović continues to amaze. Last year he was the best young player in Serie A, this year he is living up to great expectations by proving himself to be one of the best players this season,” the CEO of Serie A, Luigi De Siervo, stated following Vlahović being named the Italian Serie A League’s player of the month for December of 2021.
“Physical strength, technique, a spirit of sacrifice and a great sense of goal make him one of the most complete forwards around.”
