Speaking in a football.london Q&A, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has backed recent transfer claims involving Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing Vlahovic?
Numerous reports have detailed Tottenham’s interest in the Serbian powerhouse since the start of July, with managing director Fabio Paratici seemingly searching for a Harry Kane striking partner.
More recently, The Telegraph have become adamant that Vlahovic is Spurs’ number one striking priority this summer.
The Latest: Gold backs reports…
While he doesn’t mention anything too advance, Gold has now backed these reports of an interest in Vlahovic from Spurs.
When asked if Tottenham are genuinely eyeing a move for the exciting 21-year-old, football.london’s reliable correspondent confirmed there is in fact real weight behind it.
“Yes it is,” Gold explained in regards to whether the interest is real.
“My feeling is it would be a potential deal they look at more closely later in the window once they get some money in through sales.
“If they can get Romero through the door then he’s going to cost a fair whack and they will need to offset that.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
While Spurs fans may have to wait slightly to see this possible move go through, this claim backing all of the previous Vlahovic rumours should come as a real bit of encouragement for supporters.
Out of all Tottenham’s linked striking options, which includes Southampton star Danny Ings, Fiorentina’s young striker arguably stands out as a cut above.
Vlahovic has also been called ‘ really crazy’ by ex-Partizan Belgrade team-mate Valeri Bojinov, who detailed the player’s confidence in comparing himself to Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Planet Football).
Valued at around £36 million by Transfermarkt, a figure in and around this range would undoubtedly be worth the investment.
