Manchester City have reportedly been dealt a blow in the race to sign Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic.
Having failed to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur during the summer, Vlahovic has been regarded as a realistic alternative ahead of 2022.
At a time when he has just 20 months left on his Viola contract, the 21-year-old has scored eight goals in 11 Serie A appearances this season.
However, according to Tuttosport, Vlahovic favours a move to Juventus over making the switch to the Etihad Stadium.
On the back of a disappointing start to this season, the report suggests that the Italian side are contemplating whether to make an approach for the player at the turn of the year.
A deal would become possible if Juventus are able to part ways with Aaron Ramsey, one of the biggest earners at the club, during the January transfer window.
