“Vlahovic is a quality striker. He’s one of the best of his generation. He can do much better going forward, he has so much to give. He has already shown so much. Only time will tell, but I don’t think it is a big risk for me to say that he will be a top striker in the coming years.”
Vlahovic joined Juventus from Fiorentina in January. The striker swiftly kickstarted his career in Turin, scoring on his debut against Hellas Verona last season.

The Juventus striker belted two scintillating free-kicks into the back of the net in his last two Serie A outings, with both goals being nearly identical.
