Reports from Spain have credited two Premier League sides with an interest in Fiorentina striker, Dusan Vlahovic.
Who is Dusan Vlahovic?
Dusan Vlahovic would join current club Fiorentina in July of 2018, departing Serbian outfit Partizan Belgrade for a reported fee of around £1.7m.
Following his move to Italy, Vlahovic has endured a fairly mixed run of form.
In 2019/20, for example, the 21-year-old would score six and assist one in 30 Serie A outings, a fairly average record for a centre-forward.
However, the current campaign has seen the striker improve on that tally a great deal.
At present, Vlahovic has managed to net 12 goals and two assists in 27 league ties, doubling his goal contributions from last term in three fewer outings.

Arsenal & Tottenham linked with Vlahovic
And it now appears as though said form has attracted interest from some top European sides.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal, Tottenham, Atletico Madrid, AS Roma, AC Milan and RB Leipzig are the sides following Vlahovic, whose current contract runs until 2023.
MD claim that Roma and Spurs have already watched him live on more than one occasion, whilst Arsenal have identified the Serbian as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.
Lacazette’s future has remained up in the air for some time now, with the Frenchman having just one year left on his current deal in the summer.
This suggests that Arsenal may need to sell Lacazette in the upcoming window to avoid losing him on a free next year. AS Monaco have also been linked with a move for the Arsenal hitman this year.
