Dusan Vlahovic has failed to live up to expectations since joining Juventus in a blockbuster €70 million transfer in January 2022. The Serbian striker has scored just 23 goals in 63 appearances for the Italian giant amidst a turbulent period on and off the pitch for the club. Juventus' conservative tactics under manager Massimiliano Allegri have not suited Vlahovic's direct style, while the team as a whole has struggled with morale and unity.
With Juventus open to selling their star striker for the right price this summer, Vlahovic is being linked with moves to several of Europe's elite clubs in need of a prolific goalscorer. Juventus reportedly want a minimum fee of €60-70 million to consider letting him go.
List of latest Dusan Vlahovic transfer odds
The bookmakers see Chelsea as the main candidates in the Dusan Vlahovic next club odds, which could be explained by the strong links in recent weeks. Other European giants seem interested in the striker as well.
|To Stay at Juventus||2.5|
Chelsea are the frontrunners to sign Vlahovic this summer at odds of just 2.1. The Blues are in the market for a top striker as their record signing Romelu Lukaku never adapted to the club. In fact, Lukaku is being linked with a potential move to Juventus, with Vlahovic moving to Stamford Bridge in exchange.,
In Vlahovic, Chelsea would be getting a young, talented striker who could lead their frontline for years to come. His energetic, physical style suits the Premier League and he has already proven himself in Serie A, netting 44 goals for Fiorentina before joining Juventus. The striker is just 23 years old, meaning that new manager Mauricio Pochettino can mold him into the perfect centre-forward for his system.
Bayern Munich are yet to replace Robert Lewandowski after selling him to Barcelona last year and clearly need a top striker to lead their attack. The Bavarians experimented with playing Sadio Mane up top, but after a below-par result of 12 goals in 35 matches last term, the club was more than happy to let the Senegalese move to Saudi Arabia.
Unlike Mane, Vlahovic has the clinical finishing and hold-up play to thrive in Bayern's system. He would represent a long-term heir to Lewandowski and Bayern has a track record of giving young players the platform to develop into world-beaters. If Vlahovic can adapt quickly to the Bundesliga, he and Bayern could be a perfect match.
Paris Saint-Germain are third favorites for Vlahovic's signature this summer at 11.0. With Kylian Mbappe – he’s been training separately from the group for weeks now – potentially on his way out and Lionel Messi already departed to MLS, PSG need more firepower up front.
Vlahovic would give them an athletic target man who excels at getting on the end of crosses from Neymar and soon Ousmane Dembele out wide.
If Mbappe leaves in the end, Vlahovic would help replace the goals while offering a more traditional center forward option, which is ideal for new coach Luis Enrique. Despite having other options, the 53-year-old still insisted on playing targetman Alvaro Morata above anyone else at Spain.
Tottenham could sell star striker Harry Kane this summer for around £100 million and would need a replacement which is certain to deliver goals. The club does have Richarlison on the squad list, but after the Brazilian’s 3 goals in 35 appearances last term, incoming manager Ange Postecoglu is unlikely to be on him.
In Vlahovic, they would get just that - a proven scorer who has the potential to immediately step in for Kane without a drop-off in production. Tottenham would be getting a guaranteed 15-20 goal a season striker just entering his prime at 23 years old. For a club that relies heavily on its center forward, Vlahovic would be the ideal successor for the outgoing Kane.
Linked with Vlahovic before his move to Juventus, Real Madrid are currently looking for a long-term replacement for recently departed legend and captain Karim Benzema.
Vlahovic would be a good heir to Benzema as a strong, clinical finisher comfortable leading the line alone. However, there are doubts whether the 23-year-old would be able to replicate Benzema’s off-the-ball movement and playmaking, as he is regarded as a more traditional striker.
Nevertheless, there is no doubt that such an experienced manager as Carlo Ancelotti would find a way to incorporate Vlahovic into his system. With Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo on the wings, the Serbian forward will face no shortage of crosses and key passes – he’ll only need to find the net with the last touch.
