Dusan Vlahovic has revealed that he wants to help Fiorentina achieve European qualification this season and does has not ruled out remaining at the Italian outfit.

The 21-year-old, who has scored 16 goals for La Viola in Serie A this term, has emerged as one of the hottest properties in Europe and will be out of contract in the summer after chief executive Joe Barone told Repubblica that the forward had rejected a record contract offer from the club.

The decision opened up plenty of interest from the Premier League, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City said to be keeping tabs on the Serbian international. 

Tottenham have also been credited with an admiration for Vlahovic, after it was reported that Antonio Conte shortlisted the striker as a player to beef up his attacking options in January. 

However, Vlahovic himself has ruled out chances of a move in the winter window, revealing his plans to stay and help Fiorentina, currently sitting seventh in Serie A, reach Europe by the end of the campaign. 

He told Politika.rs: “I’ve said it several times so far. There is a good football story being made here in Florence.

“We have a good team, great players, great support from the fans. Everything deserves respect.

“Only God knows what will happen in the next period. My desire is to take Fiorentina to Europe, because we haven’t been in Europe for a long time. We’ll see.”

Vlahovic is placed right in the middle of a big transfer saga that is likely to kick off. He is performing really well for Fiorentina and has put them in contention for Europe next season, but his intention to leave the club has put him in the spotlight for a move.
