Atletico Madrid close on Vlahovic, Fiorentina contact Scamacca

With Atletico Madrid offering €70m plus bonuses for Dusan Vlahovic, Fiorentina meet with the agent representing Gianluca Scamacca and Davide Zappacosta.

It is increasingly unlikely that Vlahovic will extend his contract with the Viola and should therefore be on the move this summer.

According to the Corriere dello Sport and Tuttomercatoweb, Atletico Madrid surged ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in the race by bidding €70m plus bonuses, very close to the €80m asking price.

TMW insist another discussion is expected with the Spanish club later today by telephone, setting a deadline of Thursday for a response.

If the 21-year-old does leave, then Sassuolo striker Scamacca has been mentioned as the first-choice replacement.

It therefore rang alarm bells this afternoon when agent Alessandro Lucci was spotted arriving at the Fiorentina headquarters, as Scamacca is among his clients.

Lucci also represents Chelsea full-back Zappacosta, who is their primary candidate should Pol Lirola finally complete his transfer to Olympique Marseille for €12m.

The fee has been agreed for some time, but the clubs continue to discuss the payment schedule and precise details of the deal.

Zappacosta has also been linked with a move to Atalanta.

    Let’s be honest that’s an offer you can’t refuse, unless maybe you’re Juventus.

    100%. Good on Fiofentina if they can get in Scamacca as a direct replacement. Not Vlahovic, but an intriguing prospect with funds to fill other holes in the side.

    If Commisso, re-invests that €70MM on Scamacca and 2-3 players to strengthen the side, Fiorentina can move forward well

    Vlahovic was not the new Batistuta (not talent wise, speaking longevity/loyalty wise – he was gone next window anyway), so cash in and rebuild.
