Liverpool transfer: Liverpool FC eyeing move for Juventus star forward and could include Ibrahima Konate in swap deal
Liverpool FC are plotting a move to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic.
Vlahovic left Fiorentina to join Juventus in January of this year. The Serbian, one of the game’s most promising young players, has six goals in ten league games this season.
Losing Vlahovic halfway through the season would be disastrous for Juventus, who are currently in the hunt for the top four following a rocky start.
Liverpool, though, is reportedly interested in signing the Juventus striker and might add Ibrahima Konate in a swap deal, according to Calciomercatoweb.
In brief bursts, Konate has shown he can contend with Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk for the starting job in the second half of the season.
Selling the French defender wouldn’t make much sense because Konate could be considered Van Dijk’s long-term replacement and he is nearing the end of his career.
Darwin Nunez may have serious concerns if Liverpool decides to sign Vlahovic. The addition of another young forward so soon after the Uruguayan, who only signed during the summer, may worry Nunez.
