Man City transfer news; Dusan Vlahovic makes Man City vs Arsenal ‘decision’ as he holds a move to Manchester City.
Despite interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic is holding out for a move to Manchester City.
According to a report in La Repubblica, the Serbian goal machine has his sights set on a move to the Etihad Stadium as part of his ‘dream move’ to England.
Last summer, City were unable to complete the transfer of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, and have been connected with a number of strikers in recent months.
Due to his recent goalscoring heroics in Italy, Vlahovic is among those who have been widely associated.
The Fiorentina star, on the other hand, has been linked with a high-profile move to Arsenal, with the Gunners threatening to overtake them in the fight for his signature.
So far this season, Vlahovic has scored 20 goals in 24 games across all competitions.
Nonetheless, rumours from outside the country say that Vlahovic is holding out for a move to City.
It is also alleged that the City is keeping a close check on his progress.
Other Man City transfer news
Other strikers connected with a move to the Etihad Stadium include Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund.
According to Fichajes, City are also interested in signing Barcelona and Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
City, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain are all said to be interested in the former Ajax star, who might leave the Nou Camp soon.
De Jong joined Barcelona in 2019 but has struggled to make an impact in La Liga, scoring 10 goals and assisting 14 times in 118 games.
According to the source, all four interested teams have had a long-term interest in the Dutchman, and Chelsea has already made a proposal.
Pep Guardiola, City’s manager, is said to be a big supporter of De Jong.
