Fiorentina have received an offer from an English club for Dusan Vlahovic , but he appears to have little interest in moving to the Premier League . The 21-year-old has developed into one of the best strikers in Europe and Arsenal have long been fan of the Serbian international. Earlier this month, The Mirror reported the Gunners had tabled a £50 million offer to Fiorentina for Vlahovic . The deal also included midfielder Lucas Torreira, who is currently on loan to Fiorentina. However, Arsenal 's hopes of landing the Serbian could be dashed by Juventus.

Karim Adeyemi

Karim Adeyemi is another big talent to come out of the endless talent production line of Red Bull Salzburg, following in the footsteps of the likes of Erling Haaland, Takumi Minamino and Hwang Hee Chan in attracting attention from clubs around Europe.

The twenty year old Adeyemi has had a meteoric rise and has fast become one of the hottest prospects in world football.
