Fabio Paratici has reportedly ‘knocked on the door’ to try and sign Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic for Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic likes Tottenham
The North London club allegedly see the Fiorentina star as an ideal replacement for Harry Kane, should he move away from the Lilywhites in the summer transfer window.
The Latest: Paratici wants Vlahovic
However, Fiorentina have ‘kindly shut the door’ to Tottenham, and have made it clear that he will only be sold for a fee in the region of €60m (£51.2m).
Vlahovic could be bought as a back-up striker to Kane, or as his successor should the England international captain move on.
The Verdict: Sign
Whether Kane ends up staying or going, Vlahovic is a player that has the potential to turn out to be as prolific as him in the future.
Described as an ‘incredible’ player by Conor Clancy, editor in chief at Forza Italian Football, Vlahovic scored a very impressive 21 goals and made a further two assists in 37 games in total in Serie A over the course of the 2020/21 season (Transfermarkt), despite being just 21 years of age.
Should Tottenham sign Vlahovic?
Nonetheless, the Serbia international is a star already with plenty of time ahead of him to develop into an even better player, so Spurs may even want to think about buying him anyway to play alongside Kane and help convince him to stay.
