Juventus are in the race to sign Serbian striker, Dusan Vlahovic by next summer and are looking for creative ways to come up with the funds. The Old Lady are looking at bringing in the 21-year-old striker as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo as well as an assistant/partner for Alvaro Morata in the central striking position role at the club. There is an opening for an additional forward player after Ronaldo returned to Manchester United during last summer. 

Dusan Vlahovic is available for a transfer after the Fiorentina President revealed that the Serbian striker will not sign a new contract with the club. Thus, the club is willing to cash in on the defender as soon as the January transfer window opens. A fee in the region of €60m - €90m is what Fiorentina expects for their striker. 

Juventus are going to get creative in coming up with the fees as they have put up a couple of players for sale. One of them is midfielder Dejan Kulusevski who has fallen down the pecking order at Juventus since the arrival of Massimilliano Allegri at the club. The midfielder is reportedly attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur and a deal may be done for about €20m - €30m. 

Juventus are looking to prune their congested midfield with many players on their payroll in the middle of the park. Aaron Ramsey, Rodrigo Bentancur, Dejan Kulusevski, Adrien Rabiot, Sami Khedira, Arthur Melo, Manuel Locatelli, and Juan Cuadrado all form part of a congested midfield that the club would like to prune.
