Hailed as “prolific” by expertise scout Jacek Kulig, Vlahovic has made a convincing begin to life on the large stage, rising to prominence with Fiorentina, scoring 49 objectives from 108 video games earlier than his £67m change to Juventus, the place fortunes have been considerably tougher to come back by and plundered simply 19 strikes from 47 video games.
Regardless, he’s a harmful instrument and one who has scored ten objectives from his first 19 caps, with journalist Carlo Garganese even going as far as to declare the phenomenon a “monster“.
In accordance with FBref, the £220,000-a-week gem ranks within the high 14% of attackers in Europe for complete photographs per 90, indicating that he carries a relentless and hungry nature that might go well with the strong and high-voltage soccer that Klopp is making an attempt to implement.
