TOP STORY: Man Utd join race in Vlahovic

Manchester United have joined the race for the highly sought-after striker Dusan Vlahovic, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old has turned down a new contract with Fiorentina and with his contract in 2023 a number of clubs are said to be interested. Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Newcastle United, AC Milan and Juventus have all been linked, and United would now be in the mix.

The Red Devils would be keeping an eye on the striker, who has impressed with his 10 goals and three assists in 13 Serie A appearances so far this season.

The attacker has made huge strides in the past year, scoring 21 goals in 37 matches in the competition last season and earning a senior Serbia international call-up.

With his current contract expiring in a year and a half, reports have suggested teams could gear up to try and sign the youngster for a lower rating.

A move to the Old Trafford outfit would be one for the future as current striker Edinson Cavani’s current contract with the club expires at the end of the season. Striker Cristiano Ronaldo will also be out of contract for the foreseeable future, with his contract expiring in 2023.
