Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool get a boost in their pursuit of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the Serb has rejected a new four-year deal worth 2 million euros a year. His agent is working on his exit from Serie A outfit this summer.
AC Milan, AS Roma, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and RB Leipzig are also keen on Vlahovic. Several clubs are likely to join them in the race as he continues to impress.

The 21-year-old has conceded 19 goals and three assists in 33 Serie A games this season after finishing last season with just six league goals.
Since Tottenham do not want to sign Benfica loanee Carlo Vinicius permanently at the end of the season, it would be a sensible move to bring in Vlahovic.
Harry Kane’s immediate future at the club in north London is also in doubt, but incoming and outgoing transfers at the club this summer will depend on who the next manager is.
The youth are likely to favor a move to where European elite football is available and Liverpool will have to qualify for the Champions League to have a chance in the race.
According to Inside Futbol, the Reds have spoken to Vlahovic’s agent and things are at an advanced stage.
Liverpool need to add quality subsidies to their attack this summer following the collapse of their title defense.
The Serbian international looks set to move to the next level after rejecting Fiorentina’s expansion bid.
