Guardiola backing Man City plans to match Fiorentina price for Vlahovic

 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is interested in Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.

Guardiola is said to be 'in love' with the Serbian forward's goal-scoring ability and the Premier League giants have begun preliminary talks with Fiorentina, reports La Repubblica.

Fiorentina have tried to convince Vlahovic to extend his deal which runs until 2023 but he is looking to capitalise on his form and take on a new challenge.

La Viola could allow the goal machine to leave in January but only for a fee of £55million.

However, the Premier League champions are willing to splash out that amount to bring him to the Etihad.

The 21-year-old forward has notched 12 goals and provided two assists in 15 appearances so far to emerge as one of Europe's hottest properties.

Juventus have maintained a regular watching brief on the powerful forward as have Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle United.
