Player Profile

Dušan, a force of nature. A description that fails to encapsulate Vlahović the player. 
In addition to his physical prowess, he displays outstanding technique, power, class, and all importantly, a clinical coldness in front of goal.
Born in Belgrade on January 28, 2000, at 16 he became the youngest ever player to appear for his local club, the legendary Partizan Belgrade. He left Serbia for Italy in the summer of 2018, when he agreed to join Fiorentina. 
In less time than expected, he grasped the demands of football in Italy and adapted his individual playing style to the rigours ofCalcio. Although just 18, he was drafted into the first team, making 10 appearances, in addition to scoring 20 goals in 22 games with the Viola U-23.
Driven by his goals and all-round performances, his climb to the top has not been limited to club football alone. After making his way through the ranks for his native Serbia, he has now appeared for the senior national side.
Dušan finished the 2021 with 33 Serie A goals. In the history of the Italian top flight, only Juventus legend from the 1930’s, Felice Borel (41 goals in 1933) and Milan’s Swedish scoring machine Gunnar Nordahl (36 goals in 1950) have scored more in a single calendar year.
With 44 goals, Dušan is also one of only two footballers born after 1999, alongside Erling Haaland, to have scored at least 40 goals in Europe’s top-5 leagues.
An all-round striker.
