Alvaro Morata

Juventus are reportedly in pole position to sign Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic and Tuttosport claims an operation could affect Alvaro Morata’s future at the Allianz Stadium.

The Serbian had his big breakthrough in Serie A last term, scoring 21 times with the Viola in 2020-21.

He has continued to perform in 2021-22 and Fiorentina are doing well under Vincenzo Italiano, much thanks to the young striker.

But Vlahovic has decided against renewing with the Florentines, as Rocco Commisso sent a letter to the fans to explain the situation.

Commisso: ‘Vlahovic will not renew with Fiorentina’

The Bianconeri are, according to Tuttosport, ready to make an effort to sign the starlet, but will face competition from many clubs.

Vlahovic was linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid during the summer, with Inter asking about his situation when they were looking for Romelu Lukaku’s replacement.

Juventus have Alvaro Morata on a two-year paid loan from Atletico Madrid and the Bianconeri have an option to buy for €35m next summer, taking the total amount to €55m for the Spain international.

The reassurance of having Morata available gives sporting director Federico Cherubini time to plan his moves, as Juventus are looking to convince Commisso.

On the other hand, the Bianconeri don’t have to find a new club for Morata to make space for Vlahovic, as they can just send him back to Atletico, a decision they don’t have to take until next year.

Federico Chiesa arrived from Fiorentina last summer and the Old Lady hopes to sign the Serbia international with a similar operation.

The winger arrived on a paid loan worth €10m with an obligation to buy with conditions in July 2022.

Morata has scored three goals in seven appearances, including one in the Champions League this term and the 28-year-old’s future might depend on Vlahovic’s availability.

The 21-year-old’s contract at Fiorentina expires in June 2023, which could help the possible suitors in the negotiations with Commisso.

8 thought on “Vlahovic move to Juventus could affect Morata’s future in Turin”
  1. i think everyone needs to relax. i dont think this operation is as easy as people think for juve. fiorentina lost bernardeshi, chiesa to juventus. they going do everything to prevent him from going to juve. morata knows what he needs to do to stay at juve. he needs to score 20+ goals in the season. i definitely think there is a chance he does it

  2. @serie a Lover, don’t forget the biggest coup of all time, the one and only Roberto Baggio. Fiorentina have never gotten over that! Also remember that Rocco is/ was a juve fan before buy Fiorentina.

  3. Juve should do all they can to sign Vlahovic, he will be one of the best in the world if not the best. Juve do not do another Halaand and miss on him.

  4. Given the history of Juve and Firenze transfers, I’m sure they can make it happen. 2- year loan with obligation to by etc..

  5. I agree with Boori – this just needs to happen. Big test of Juve new management team who’s recent performance on the market hasn’t been great. Opportunity to redeem themselves getting this done!

  6. Actually it is pretty easy for the Juve management just copy the deal of Chiesa… If Vlahovic relly wants only to join Juve than I doubt there will be any problems. We saw it already with Locatelli. At the end of the day they will have to take what they get offered from Juve unless Vlahovic would accept other offers from abroad. They cannot risk to lose him on a free…
