The Serbian has been in fine form for Fiorentina this season in Serie A with 21 strikes to his name from 36 outings, earning his admirers from several quarters across Europe

 

As revealed exclusively by Inside Futbol, Premier League giants Liverpool have held talks with Vlahovic’s representatives over taking him to Anfield

 

 

Ex-Fiorentina CEO Mencucci is of the view that it is normal for a player of Vlahovic’s quality to have many potential suitors when the transfer window is looming closer.

 

Mencucci explained that Vlahovic had a well-executed devotement path from a young age and lauded him for having a down to earth attitude.

 

 

“An extraordinary player, we took him to Florence at the beginning of his career”, Mencucci said on Italian radio station Radio Bruno.

 

“He has always been humble, when he played in the Primavera, he trained in the first team but remained humble doing his duty by playing with the youth players.

 

 

“It is normal that there are many suitors, he has had a really important development path.”

 

Fiorentina are keen on tying Vlahovic down with a new long-term deal, with him having two more years remaining on his current deal.

 

And it remains to be seen whether Liverpool will approach La Viola with a concrete offer for the striker, should they decide to launch a swoop when the transfer window swings open.
