As Paris Saint-Germain seems to take their eyes off Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, they have now been linked with Juventus center-forward Dusan Vlahovic.

PSG plans to replace Kylian Mbappe, who has been placed on the market, turning down a contract extension.

The Club management has clarified that they won’t allow their prize asset to leave for Free.

According to Le Parisien, Vlahovic has emerged as one of the main priorities for PSG if  Mbappe leaves.

Bianconeri seems ready to part with Vlahovic for the right price, which is believed to be circa €80m plus add-ons. This is also because he has struggled to fit in with coach Max Allegri’s tactics.

Since Juve have failed to qualify for the Champions League and are likely to be excluded from the Conference League too by UEFA due to financial irregularities that saw them docked 10 Serie A points, this will be a good business for them.

The Old Lady paid Fiorentina €81.6m plus up to €10m in various bonuses to sign the 23-year-old in January 2020.

It will also be a good business for the Ligue 1 giant as Vlahovic would be less than half the price Napoli are requesting for Osimhen, which is close to €200m.

Vlahobiv is also linked with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United.

Juventus lined up  Gianluca Scamacca as a replacement for the Serbian striker in a related development. They are now battling Milan and Roma for the West Ham striker,  only if  Vlahovic is sold.

Scamacca, who left Sassuolo for the London club last summer, wants a return to Serie A. The striker has struggled to settle at West Ham.

According to Sky Sports Italia, Roma, and Milan have negotiated with West Ham, proposing a loan deal with an option to buy, which the Hammers are not interested in accepting.

Should Juve sell Vlahovic, they would be able to reinvest in the Italy international center-forward.
