Former Serie A ace Massimo Brambati has suggested that Dusan Vlahovic would get 30 to 35 goals per season if Antonio Conte was in charge of Juventus instead of Massimiliano Allegri.
Juventus paid €75m (£59.9m) to snap up Vlahovic from Fiorentina 12 months ago after the striker enjoyed a prolific 18 months in front of goal at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
The centre-forward has struggled to replicate the same sort of output since his move to the Allianz Stadium, although his numbers for the Old Lady are still decent, with 16 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions (Transfermarkyt).
Reports in the Italian press over recent months have indicated that the Old Lady are looking to re-sign Conte next summer to replace Allegri at the helm (Gazzetta dello Sport – 28/10/22 via Sport Witness).
Brambati believes that Vlahovic would explode if the Tottenham head coach does return to Turin next summer.
The pundit told TuttoMerctoWeb about the 22-year-old striker: “With Conte, he would be at least 5-6 kg less and in a season he would score between 30-35 goals, given his type of game. We saw it with Lukaku at Inter.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Brambati’s point is hard to argue against as it is not just with Lukaku that we have seen such transformations but also more recently with Bentancur and Kulusevski, who were both struggling under Allegri.
We have also seen the likes of Hojbjerg, Dier, Sessegnon and co improve considerably under Conte, which further substantiates why Spurs must hang on to the Italian at all costs.
