Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic says he expects to stay at the Italian club this summer, despite links with a move away from the Viola.
It was reported in April that Liverpool had opened talks with the Serbian’s agents, with both Manchester United and West Ham also said to be keen, but the forward claims he is concentrating on playing for his current club:
“I see myself at Fiorentina, I have two more years of contract and on 7th July, I will be there for the [pre-season] roll-call.”
Vlahovic was in excellent form last season, scoring 21 goals in 37 league appearances, and it prompted speculation that he could leave Fiorentina.
Reports in Italy suggest that the Serie A side are keen on giving the 21-year-old a new contract, in order to ward off interest from potential suitors, but so far, no new deal has been agreed.
A price tag of €60m (£51m) has been mentioned, and it must be said that Liverpool would probably steer clear of making an official approach if Fiorentina were to stick to that valuation.
