The Bianconeri star has scored four goals in eight games across all competitions this season, but only from open play and Juventus’ offensive production is being a matter of concern for the Serie A giants and their coach Max Allegri.
Vlahovic has now joined the Serbia national team and will face Sweden and Norway in the upcoming Nations League games.
“I am looking forward to returning to Stara Pazova,” he said at a press conference as quoted by Gianluca Di Marzio.
“I had physical issues the last time, but the coach has always helped me. I’ve cheered on my teammates when I was injured and now I am happy to be back. I am looking forward to facing Sweden and Norway.
“The coach’s trust means a lot,” he continued.
“Even when I wasn’t playing much with my club, he always called me, pushing me to give my best and get good results. I was the youngest player here, now there is Stefan Mitrovic.”
The 22-year-old has scored seven goals in 14 games with his national team, making his debut in October 2020 when he wasn’t even a regular starter for Fiorentina.
He has scored 13 goals in 29 games with Juventus since his €80m move to the Allianz Stadium in January 2022.
