Dušan Vlahović is one of the most in-form players in he world right now. And, as a result, he has attracted several admirers. The Fiorentina transfer news is certainly heating up. It feels inevitable that a player of Vlahović‘s calibre, and of his young age of 21, will eventually swap the elegance of Florence for the excitement of Champions League football elsewhere. For now, however, he remains a ‘Viola’ player – as club president Rocco Commisso has reminded us.
The president recently told Tutti Convocati: “I don’t know if Juventus are able to sign Vlahovic in January. But I wanna say to Juventus or Arsenal that we [Fiorentina] are the ‘owners’ of Vlahovic. They should open talks with us – not with his agents.”
The focus isn’t just on potential outgoings, though. According to Fabrizio Romano, Jonathan Ikoné has accepted Fiorentina’s proposal, with the Lille midfielder set to complete the move worth £15 million in the January transfer window.

Vlahović: The Forward Spearheading Fiorentina’s Champions League Push
As things stand, Fiorentina sit sixth in Serie A – seven points adrift of fourth place Atalanta. With that in mind, and a long way to go this season, it would not be bizarre to suggest that Fiorentina can still reach the dreamland of Champions League football, especially with a player of Vlahović‘s ability leading the line.
The 21-year-old has scored 14 goals in 16 games this season. For context, that’s more than Romelu Lukaku, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The fact is, the Italians have one of the best strikers in the world at their disposal, and must make use of that whilst they still can. Every minute that Fiorentina spend outside of the Champions League is another step closer to Vlahović‘s time at the club coming to an end.
For now, the Serbian is theirs, but, on current form, it might not be long before a big move is secured.
