Ex-Fiorentina star confirms Rossoneri’s interest in striker: “Milan are really thinking about it”

By Oliver Fisher -

Former Fiorentina player and youth team manager Massimo Orlando has seemingly confirmed Milan’s strong interest in Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic has been quite simply outstanding for Fiorentina this season scoring 21 goals in Serie A so far despite their struggles, with 17 of those coming in 2021 leading to suggestions he is being courted by a number of top clubs.

Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) are among the sources who have reported that Vlahovic is Milan’s first target for the attack. The Serbian has exploded this season and therefore it will not be easy for anyone to buy him. Rocco Commisso – the president of Fiorentina – does not want to sell the young talent for obvious reasons, especially as he is looking for a new head coach.

Former Viola star Massimo Orlando, spoke to the microphones of CMIT TV, the YouTube channel of Calciomercato.it, and confirmed that to his knowledge Milan are seriously about landing Vlahovic.

“He is different from Batistuta, he doesn’t have his heading but he is a fantastic player. The problem is that now Fiorentina will have to face a renewal and I don’t know how available the boy is in this regard,” he said.

“From what I know Milan are really thinking about it, and they could try. Vlahovic is already thinking about the big leap. The road hypothesised by Commisso from the point of view of the results is a bit far. If the great chance like that of Milan should arrive, even if Mourinho also likes him for Roma, the president with the important offer would think about it.”
