Barcelona Could Have Signed Inform Forward For €18 Million In 2020

After being presented with a fantastic chance to acquire in-form striker Dusan Vlahovic for a much reduced fee in the summer of 2020, Barcelona made an unprecedented decision to drop out of the negotiations.

In a meeting with Vlahovic's agent, Darko Ristic, according to MARCA, former director of football Eric Abidal presented a loan deal for the 2020/21 season with an obligation to purchase for €18 million the following season.

As it turns out, though, Barcelona had their worries about Vlahovic's ability since the striker had just six goals in the 2019/20 football season when the deal was announced. Barcelona's choice has, to their credit, backfired, as the 21-year-old is now one of the most sought-after players in the whole European continent.

Vlahovic's finest season came during the Covid-hit 2020/21 Serie A campaign, during which he scored 21 goals in 37 appearances. His excellent record has continued into the current campaign, with the striker scoring 19 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions thus far.

Vlahovic's status has improved to the point that he is being pursued by a number of major teams around Europe. On top of that, his transfer worth has skyrocketed to between €70 and €80 million, according to several sources. According to reports, Fiorentina will not accept any offer that is lower than these sums.

One team that has been making the rounds in Serbia is Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, which is owned by the Spaniard. It has been reported that Arsenal has shown a strong interest in acquiring the youngster and are willing to spend €70 million for his talents, according to the previously cited source.

According to reports from December, while Erling Haaland remains Barcelona's first goal, the club will attempt to acquire Vlahovic in the event that negotiations with the Norwegian are unsuccessful.

Meanwhile, as far as Vlahovic is concerned, any type of agreement will almost certainly be reached on Fiorentina's conditions. And, as interest in the striker rises, the Italians will have the power to negotiate the highest possible price from the buyers' market, despite the fact that the striker is in the last 18 months of his contract.
