Tottenham Hotspur have now been gifted a boost in their pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic sighted
As per Calciomercato.it, Vlahovic is currently ‘in the sights’ of Spurs ahead of a potential move to North London.
Should Tottenham sign Vlahovic?
He was linked with a move to Nuno Espirito Santo’s team all through the summer transfer window, and it is not clear whether they will revisit their interest in January.
The Latest: Contract issue
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Fiorentina do not see Vlahovic’s €70m (£59.7m) release clause as a ‘sufficient shield’ to protect them from the Lilywhites, as well as Manchester City.
There is currently a contract ‘issue’ in that the Serbia international has not accepted the new deal offered to him, which has led to ‘torment’ at the Serie A club.
The Verdict: Boost
It is certainly a boost for THFC that Vlahovic has not managed to sign a new deal, and it seems as if Fiorentina have surrendered that they may lose him if the right offer comes in.
The striker has started off the season with a bang, with five goals in five games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt), and at just 21 years of age, is one of the most promising attacking players in Europe at the moment.
Nonetheless, a partnership consisting of both him and Harry Kane would seriously frighten defenders, and with so many years to develop in front of him, the 6 foot 3 colossus hailed as ‘incredible‘ by Serie A expert Conor Clancy could eventually replace the Spurs talisman.
