Juventus would be willing to sell 21-year-old Sweden winger Dejan Kulusevski for 35-40m euros (£29m-34m) in January, with Arsenal, Tottenham and Bayern Munich the main contenders

Let’s just go ahead and fund Juventus’ move for Vlahovic.

We were told when this came up originally that this is agent led, the giveaway being Arsenal and us always seemingly in the frame for the same signings. They can barely afford to pay for their summer signings.

Even if we were interested he's already indicated that he prefers a move to us rather than them. Giving them any money won't change anything, he wants to play in the PL.

For years it has felt like we’ve been led by agents rather than doing proper scouting so I wouldn’t completely rule it out! ?

Top talent , FP bought him already for Juve so that says a lot and had a very good season last year. He doesnt fit in with current Juve managers Allegri's style or main formation. More of a wing forward but can also play AM but mainly WF who can can play either flank also, pacey, good acceleration and stamina are key attributes too boot, can see why Conte would want him in terms of his style pf play and formation.

If conte wants hims aswell then im all for it, a neg / down side is that he is a big gooner fan?:wtf:? .

Interesting as I've heard him described as slow. Never really seen him so can't say either way

One time I watched him play vs Croatia he was the best player on the pitch, expected him to become a star. Scored a decent goal and was unlucky not to have the assist. Croatian pundits couldn't stop talking about him.

Surely the hardest thing to do in a limited amount of time in Jan get all parties to agree to this. Would have to already got everyone to agree by now for this to happen

He's a colossal talent and one of the most exciting prospects in world football. He hasn't, however, set the world alight at Juventus but at 21 remains a top top talent.

Decent player and got a lot of raw talent Conte could work with. Based on what I've seen at the Swedish national team he's not lightning quick like Son for example but I would definitely not say he's slow either. I do think we have bigger priorities position wise but wouldn't be totally against this.

Not saying this is a good idea but swaps would make sense.

Makes a lot of sense this. I can’t see how see how GLC is going to fit into our 343. Kusulevski has had a similar problem this season as he primarily played off the right of a front 3 most of his career and has struggled to hold down a position in Juve’s 442 this season.

He’s a very talented boy.

So much smoke with us liking him. It has been going on since the summer. I didn't realise how little he had played at Juve but if a deal is to be done you'd hope Paratici would be able to sort it.

I am assuming Juventus are allowed to trade players though, they had those financial investigations the other month. I'm not sure if they had a ban on transfers as part of it, I am assuming not?

Had a quick nose at a Juve forum. They seem none too pleased about the prospect of selling this chap.

Sounds ideal to compete for that right forward role. Not sure about swapping Lo Celso though as would leave us short in CM. I would prefer to let Ndombele go as not convinced he can play in midfield 2 like Lo Celso. He and Alli I would let go ahead of Lo Celso.

Could be that we’ll move for another midfielder if we move either Ndombele or Lo Celso on.

My only reservation from the limited amount I’ve seen is that he’s another that’s not exactly easy on the eye, a-line with Hojbjerg Emerson type. Of course this doesn’t mean a player can’t be a good player. Just my personal feeling is we already have a few to many of these types and especially in attacking areas I’d prefer something a bit more silky.
