Over recent decades there have been notable Serbian players that have competed at some of the highest levels of football, including Branislav Ivanovic, Dušan Tadic and Aleksandar Kolarov.
Each one was talented in their own right, but the new age of Serbian football is led by one of the most promising strikers in the world; Dusan Vlahovic.
The Fiorentina striker is quickly becoming one of the most discussed players around Europe and it’s no mistake that Vlahovic is garnering the attention when looking at his production in Serie A over the past two seasons.
In 2020/21, Vlahovic only trailed Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku and Luis Muriel in league goals and now he’s tied atop Serie A this season with 17 goals alongside Lazio star Ciro Immobile.
For that reason, massive clubs like Arsenal, Tottenham and Real Madrid have all taken closer looks at the young goal scorer, with the Gunners reportedly the most infatuated by Vlahovic over recent months.
That was until Juventus recently stepped up their pursuit.
After the departure of Ronaldo last summer, which shocked many across Italian circles, the Turin-based club has struggled domestically despite remaining in the UEFA Champions League.
