As per La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), it appears the agents of Dusan Vlahovic could now gift Fabio Paratici and Tottenham Hotspur a much-needed boost as news emerges on a top target.
The Lowdown: Vlahovic eyed by Spurs…
According to numerous reports, both Spurs and Paratici certainly haven’t given up the chase for Vlahovic despite faltering in their bid to sign him over the summer.
Now, some news has emerged on Vlahovic’s future which could be of real interest to Tottenham supporters.
The Latest: Agents could gift Spurs boost…
As per La Gazzetta (via SW), Fiorentina’s new deal discussions with Vlahovic’s representatives aren’t exactly going swimmingly – with his agents now ‘postponing the discussion on the possible new contract to the end of the year’.
It is also believed that this would put La Viola in serious danger of losing him for a cut price given he will have just 18 months left on his current contract by that point.
One major obstacle to finding an agreement is the release clause issue, which Vlahovic’s agents do not intend to raise over €60 million (£51.8m).
This fee would not protect Fiorentina in any way given that fee was tabled in the last months of the summer market, with the report saying both Spurs and Atletico did just that.
Indeed, going by this development, Paratici could go back in for the striker at an affordable cost depending on developments.
The Verdict: A timely boost…
As this report makes a £51.8m release clause claim, it will undoubtedly come as a big boost for Paratici and Spurs as they refuse to give up on Vlahovic.
Of course, if his club are able to raise that clause then he may simply be moved out of Paratici’s reach at Tottenham, so there is no doubt the Lilywhites’ transfer guru will be delighted with the latest update.
