Italian media continue to link Liverpool with hot-shot forward



Liverpool are reportedly one of several clubs interested in Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic – a promising 21-year-old striker who has 19 Serie A goals to his name this season.

According to Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by our friends in SempreMilan, Roma, AC Milan Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City are also keen on the Serbian international.

Fiorentina have endured a stuttering form this season, but Vlahovic have turned on and shown the best drawer performances each week so far.

The Fiorentina star represents a different type of striker for Liverpool than what they have now, with people like Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and even Divock Origi perhaps more technically inclined.

The 21-year-old is the kind of striker we have not seen at Anfield since Christian Benteke and Andy Carroll – a goalkeeper; more a physical and airy presence in the box.

While promising, it should not be expected that Vlahovic would start most games for Liverpool, with the aforementioned Firmino and Jota as paired with Jurgen Klopp when choosing a central striker.
