Fiorentina have received "important offers" for Dusan Vlahovic and would even be willing to let him move to rivals Juventus.
Vlahovic is one of the most in-demand players in Europe after a sensational 2021 saw him join Cristiano Ronaldo and Luca Toni as the only players in the past 60 years to score more than 30 Serie A goals in a calendar year.
The 21-year-old has found the back of the net 20 times in 24 appearances in all competitions this season alone, with Ciro Immobile (21) the only Serie A player to have registered more.
Vlahovic will be out of contract at the end of next season and has been heavily linked with Juve, Arsenal and Manchester City.
Fiorentina are open to selling him and have received offers, but the lack of responses from the player's camp have hampered their chances of doing a deal during the January transfer window.
The Viola are hoping to receive in the region of €70million but have also offered the striker a new contract in an attempt to avoid losing him for nothing when his deal expires.

"We've received some important offers for him but have never received feedback from his agents," Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade told Sportitalia.
"There has always been great transparency on our part in all communication. All the doors are open. We really want to understand what the agents and the player want to do.
"We're ready to spend money with important offers for his renewal. We also have important offers to sell him. A club like Fiorentina cannot afford to lose a player on a free transfer.
"They were all valid and satisfactory offers, with payment methods that suited us. We couldn't go ahead with the deal because there was never any contact with the player's agents.
"It's an important valuation, over €70million with no swap deal and no way of paying in instalments. The president has imposed this on us."
Asked specifically if Fiorentina would even be willing to sell to Juve, Prade replied: "The doors are open to everyone."
