City are in the market for a new striker this summer with their priority remaining Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane but the club are prepared to walkaway from the deal if Spurs do not lower their asking price.
Tottenham had targeted Vlahovic as the replacement for Kane should he go to Manchester City, but it seems as if Pep Guardiola has decided to go straight for the younger and cheaper forward instead.
The report claims Man City see Vlahovic as a ‘substitute for Harry Kane’. Fiorentina are now ‘waiting for the offer’.
The 21 year-old centre-forward joined Fiorentina in 2018 from Partizan for a knockdown €1.95m. The Serbia international scored 21 Serie A goals last season and currently has seven caps for Serbia, with two goals.
The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters, who took to the social media platform to share their thoughts and opinions.

Don’t think this will happen, but seems a great talent. 21 goals in Serie A last season for a team that finished 13th. Only 21yo too— LittleCiteh (@Little__Citeh) August 18, 2021
Most likely us trying to push the Kane deal this or Vlahovic agent asking around but if it is true I’ll be happy 21 league goals last season with our creative players he’ll be very good— Cameron (@Cameron_MCFC_) August 18, 2021
