Paris Saint-Germain did not complete any notable moves over the recent winter transfer window, although the club was linked with now-former Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic.
In the end, Vlahovic signed with Juventus on a multiyear permanent transfer deal. However, PSG was in the mix to sign the Serbian international.
As Serbia national team manager Dragan Stojkovic revealed to TuttoJuve, Vlahovic ended up snubbing the likes of PSG and Real Madrid en route to staying put in Serie A.
“I spoke with him three or four days before the meeting [November fixture] with Portugal,” Stojkovic said. “He asked me about his future, there was talk of top clubs like PSG, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus. To Dusan, with much sincerity, I told him to stay in Italy and continue playing in a league where he was very comfortable. … I am certainly not his agent, but my advice was to go to Juve.”
Vlahovic currently sits at 23 goals scored in Serie A play this season, with six of them coming with the Bianconeri.
PSG could once again end up scouring the transfer market for a keen forward in the coming months, especially as Kylian Mbappe remains on par to become a free agent at the end of the season.
