Juventus have reached an agreement with Fiorentina to sign the much-coveted striker Dusan Vlahovic for around €75m (£62.8m).

Vlahovic and his agent are holding contract talks with Juventus, subject to which the move is due to go through. The 21-year-old Serbia international, a target for clubs including Arsenal, made clear he would not extend his contract beyond next season, prompting Fiorentina to strike a deal for his transfer this month.

Vlahovic has 17 goals in 21 Serie A appearances this season, making him the league’s joint top scorer with Lazio’s Ciro Immobile. The Juventus striker Álvaro Morata, on loan from Atlético Madrid, hopes Vlahovic’s arrival will enable him to join Barcelona but that would hinge on permission from his parent club and whether Barcelona have the financial capacity to register him.

Fiorentina want to sign the Brazilian striker Arthur Cabral from Basel to replace Vlahovic and have submitted an opening bid of €14m plus €2m in add-ons.

The Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat is Tottenham’s main target if they conclude a deal to send Tanguy Ndombele on loan to Paris Saint-Germain. Amrabat is with Morocco at the Africa Cup of Nations.
