According to a report by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via Sport Witness, Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic remains a ‘dream’ signing for Tottenham Hotspur this summer but Fabio Paratici may have a battle on his hands.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing Vlahovic…
Tottenham are eyeing a move for Vlahovic this summer and have been heavily linked since Paratici’s appointment as managing director in north London.
The Latest: Vlahovic a ‘dream’ signing for Spurs…
The big issue appears to be the player’s stance on leaving La Viola this summer, with the 21-year-old apparently not keen on a move away. His current deal expires in 2023 and the forward is waiting for his representatives to start talks over a possible extension.
Furthermore, Fiorentina are also not eager to sell, potentially leaving Paratici with a major battle to secure his signature.
The Verdict: Big blow…
This news comes as a blow for Spurs and their interest in landing Vlahovic this summer.
He would undoubtedly be an incredible acquisition if Paratici can somehow get it over the line, especially going by his mighty 21 goal-haul in Serie A over 2020/21 (WhoScored).
It’s little wonder his club are keen to keep him, with Paratici now seemingly facing an uphill struggle to lure the Serbian to Tottenham.
