Report: Hammers are admirers of Serbian striker

West Ham are reported to be interested in Italian top-flight side Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic.

Calciomercato reports that the Hammers are big admirers of the 21-year-old whose current contract with the Serie A club Fiorentina is due to expire in 2023.

The 6ft 3in Serbian ace is a physical striker that has mainly operated as part of a two-man attack this season, sometimes alongside Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery.

Born in Belgrade, Vlahović started playing football in “Altina Zemun” football school, where he spent mostly time with older generations. Later he was with OFK Beograd for three months, and also made 1 appearance for Red Star Belgrade, but he joined Partizan in summer 2014.

Vlahović signed his first professional contract with Partizan in 2015, when he was only 15 years old. In the summer of 2017, Vlahović preliminary signed a five-year professional contract with Fiorentina for a small transfer fee of £1.76m,, which became official on his 18 birthday, 28 January 2018. In March last year, Vlahovic tested positive for COVID-19.

  1. He reminds me of Arnatouvic, he looks to have everything in a striker you would want, completely different level than players like Abraham. If we could sign him and the CH they would be two exciting signings.

  2. I didn’t watch the whole video but he seems very left footed. Would prefer an “ambipedal” striker. Otherwise, he looks the part.
