Writing on Twitter, journalist Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express has made a Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Vlahovic race…
The Serbian star has been on Tottenham’s list of attacking targets for quite some time, with numerous reliable sources backing their interest.
Fantacalcio also believe that the player himself ‘really likes’ the idea of joining Tottenham.
Taylor, taking to social media, has brought an update on Spurs’ pursuit.
The Latest: Spurs talks ‘intensify’ for Vlahovic…
As per the reporter, writing on his Twitter, talks to sign Vlahovic have just turned up a notch.
He claims that Spurs are in ‘direct contact’ with the player’s agent Darko Ristic over a move but have yet to negotiate with La Viola.
“Tottenham intensify talks for Dusan Vlahović after collapse of Lautaro Martinez transfer,” the reporter explained.
“Spurs in direct contact with his agent Darko Ristić but no negotiations with Fiorentina as of yet.”
The Verdict: Number one priority?
Lauded as a ‘really crazy’ player by former Partizan Belgrade teammate Valeri Bojinov for his self-comparisons with Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Planet Football), we believe the 21-year-old rising star could be what Spurs need to partner Harry Kane.
The 6 foot 3 beast bagged 21 goals and two assists for Fiorentina over 2020/2021 in Serie A alone and could well be worth the extra financial effort to bring him to north London.
Reportedly valued at around £51.4 million, Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy will have to take an economic risk if they wish to prise him away from the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
Fiorentina are currently trying to tie Vlahovic down with a new deal but there is a belief he is now ‘heading towards the exit door’.
Spurs should waste no time in taking full advantage and snapping up one of the world’s most promising forwards.
